Under the agreement, Answers.com will display product information from Shopping.com as a supplement to its content library. For instance, looking up “LCD Projector” on Answers.com will now provide – beyond the Answers.com complete explanation about the device and its technology – detailed information necessary for users to decide whether and where to buy a product, including access to product descriptions, reviews, and comparisons of merchant prices. Answers.com will receive a portion of revenues generated when consumers click through to merchants’ sites.
Look for Shopping.com content to begin appearing on Answers.com this summer.
