Sarah Shopper the price tracker for Lazada and others

For the past few months, I've been busy working on a new project. Now that it's quite stable, I'm happy to share it here.

Sarah Shopper is a chatbot that helps you track price from popular ecommerce websites such as, IKEA, Lazada, and some other websites in Southeast Asia region. If you are amongst the people who want to get the lowest price for each of the purchase you make, Sarah Shopper is great news for you. Just send her a link, and she will notify you when the price drops.

For example, I've been meaning to buy a Google Pixel phone, but I can't justify the price. So I search for that phone on Lazada, and then share the link to the product page to Sarah on Messenger. So far, the price has dropped three times, but it's still too expensive for me 😂.

Price tracking (or price monitoring) is not a new concept, but most services focus on and available as a website or Chrome extension. I decided to do it differently. Sarah Shopper is a price watcher for Lazada from the comfort of messaging apps.

Sarah Shopper was initially available on Messenger, but now you can also chat with her on Google Assistant and LINE. Go ahead, click those links and try it yourself.
