Online Shopping Malls

Online shopping malls are websites that enable a multi-vendor checkout system enabling retailers to sell in one portal and allow the consumer to check out with one single credit card transaction.

Collections of many traders with different offers directly on the same website are also sometimes known as online shopping malls or virtual shopping malls. Some online malls make use of Affiliate Links to connect shoppers directly to different shops. These sites do not facilitate the payments themselves, but recover small commotions for products sold by following Links from their online malls to the partnering shops.

Online shopping malls offer a wide variety of products, you can find deals on electronics, clothing, pet products, and so much more. Most online shopping malls offer discounted products or special promo codes you can use on checkouts. Rather than going into physical mall to shop at different stores you can now do that from the comfort of your own home.

Some online shopping malls include eCRATER,, Shopzilla and PriceGrabber.
