The team: Product Page

After the price comparison, idealo doesn't only refer users to partner shops but also offers users the possibility to purchase offers from selected partner shops directly on idealo. This is called “Direktkauf”. As part of this journey, users are shown a product page, just as they would be in the shop, where they can discover the product and decide to enter the checkout.
