Where-to-Buy solution helps Char-Broil quantify the role their website plays in the customer journey

July 21, 2016 / PriceSpider



With PriceSpider’s technology and Where-To-Buy (WTB) tool, Char-Broil gained valuable insights with how consumers were shopping for their products online. Char-Broil discovered that when consumers clicked on the “Where-to-Buy” button on a product page, 58% showed purchasing interest by clicking on the “Buy” button that led to a retailer. As a result, the Char-Broil website attribution increased.


A majority of the Char-Broil products are purchased in-store, however, with the rise of consumers shopping online, Char-Broil knew they had to find a way to understand the online shopper and quantify the influence their website had.

"Being able to quantify the role plays in the consumer journey has been a huge win for us internally. We’re able to understand our retailer relationships better, our product line better and overall better understand the role we can play as a manufacturer in the direct to consumer space."

– Matt Weiss, E-Commerce Manager


Matt Weiss, E-Commerce Manager for Char-Broil, saw the PriceSpider Where-to-Buy tool on a website he was viewing and knew right away that Char-Broil would benefit from the tool.

Brand Matching & UX Best Practices
During implementation, PriceSpider and Char-Broil worked together to design the WTB to match Char-Broil’s branding. To deliver the best user experience and eliminate friction, they decided to show local and online sellers side-by-side and show stock availability.
