Due to the recent pandemic, we’re constantly struggling to find the safest ways to purchase products for either ourselves or our companies. The easiest way to do this is to shop online, but places such as Amazon or eBay are never specific enough to get what you really want.
It can also be difficult to know that you’re getting exactly what you want, and people haven’t listed it incorrectly. But, rest assured, these seven specialized search engines have exactly what you’re looking for, and will make your COVID-19-safe purchasing so much easier.
If your needs are for industrial products, consider Thomasnet. If you’re looking for a specialist website for an industrial business, Thomasnet can help you. It gives you over 6 million different products to choose from. All of these are from professional and specialist companies and can work with small businesses as well as big ones. You can also purchase tools from here, and follow their blog for business tips from their 120 years’ of experience.
#2 Dropship Sites
If you prefer an alternate way of purchasing, or you need something that is not dependent on the company, try Dropship Sites.
If you’re not too fussed about the quality of an item, but you just need it for a one-time deal and to be relatively cheap, Dropshipping is probably for you. Dropshipping is where you buy products from a courier, and not the business, and then they deliver it to you. Dropship Sites gives you access to many of these couriers and drop shippers around the world.
#3 King Product Finder (KPfinder)
If you want to find a gift or a service, or something that will help you with your DIY plans, go to King Product Finder.
King Product Finder (or KPfinder for short) is a good place to pick up services and products from a range of sellers. They have a vast range of sectors on their website, so it’s a good place to start looking for a gift for someone or get some materials for a DIY project you have been working on that they don’t sell at your local Home Depot or Target stores.
If you want high quality, specific electronics to repair hardware in your computer or find a reliable supplier for your electronics business, try Octopart.
If you’re looking for electronics for parts of a computer or an electronics business, you’ll need to use an electronic components sourcing database. It can show a very wide range of suppliers and can give you exactly what you are looking for by just searching for a name. This is very industry-specific and time-saving, especially if you aren’t getting the right product or quality anywhere else.
If you are required to travel for work and it cannot be avoided, try looking at deals on Kayak.
Kayak will give you the best deals on travel so you can focus on more important things, such as staying COVID-19 safe, rather than the cost of the flight. They also give you access to Hotels and car rental services for airplane flights so you can get everything organized and not have to worry about those details on your stressful trips around the country.
#6 Book Finder
If you want to start reading more but you can’t find any good books on Amazon or all your local bookstores are closed, have a look at Book Finder.
Book finder gives you access to hundreds of thousands of books. They have a massive library of books, both fiction and non-fiction, for reasonable prices. They both sell new and used books, and have a specific advanced search to find the exact book or author you might be looking for. It does this by searching the inventories of booksellers worldwide to get the right prices for you.
#7 eBay / Shopping.com
If you want to find comparative deals and shopping from websites such as eBay, Shopping.com might have exactly what you are looking for.
If you love finding the best deals for luxury or leisure items, shopping.com is a good place to start your search. They have top deals, intrigues, and recommendations for things you might like. This can be a handy site for looking for gifts for friends and family members at low prices and can give you exactly what you want for the right prices.
There are seven of the best specialist search engines that are bound to make your COVID-19-safe purchasing easier. There are many more to choose from outside of these seven that you could use. Some are universal; others are country-specific.
Either way, it’s always good to check elsewhere before finding a purchase or to get a resource from a reliable supplier if you need it for your business. They can be a real time-saver and can boost your buying experience to no end.
