Shopping is a central channel within the search ecosystem, displaying results at the top or to the side of the Google SERP. For e-commerce brands, its vital that you adopt an approach that seeks shopping excellence.

At Stickyeyes, we have our very own Comparison Shopping Service (CSS), helping you to deliver shopping excellence. Not only could you benefit from around a 20% saving on CPC by using our CSS platform, but our shopping services can be adapted to your needs to drive greater shopping performance.

An integrated approach

An integrated approach

At Stickyeyes, we’re champions of a One Search approach. Shopping is simply one piece of a wider SERP landscape including Paid Search and Organic Search. Our award winning SEO & PPC teams work together to help you understand how your shopping results contribute to this wider ecosystem.

Stickyeyes, and our wider Reprise Group CSS clients include:


What is a CSS?

A Comparison Shopping Service (CSS) is able to serve ads on Google search results on behalf of a merchant. All merchants looking to serve ads on the Google SERP must therefore use a CSS. By default, it is most likely that you are currently using Google Shopping, Google’s own CSS.

When using Google Shopping, Google charges a margin every time a click cost is incurred. This margin is added onto the CPCs within your account.

Our Stickyeyes CSS does not charge a margin in this way. Brands using our CSS can save on average 20%. Which means, delivering the same performance for a reduced cost or, should you reinvest that budget, we can deliver a stronger performance for the same cost.

How we can work with you

Managed Service

As part of a fully managed service, Stickyeyes would be responsible for all aspects of shopping excellence, delivering outstanding shopping performance. This could include:

  • Merchant Centre management
  • Feed management
  • Shopping campaign setup and optimisation
  • Reporting

The advantage of a fully managed service is that a single team is responsible for everything from feed optimisation to campaign deployment, allowing for a holistic, joined up approach.

Self Service

Under the self-service model, you have the option to use the Comparison.Shop CSS to serve your campaigns, but will manage all elements of your shopping yourself or through another third party.

Hybrid Model

A hybrid model is a combination of the managed service and self service. You will be able to serve shopping ads via the Stickyeyes CSS, but could also choose to work with us on just some of our additional services. This could include active management, or simply consultation services.

This allows us to be flexible based on your needs. It also means that we’re accustomed to supporting in-house teams at delivering shopping excellence.

How retailers and brands can prepare for Black Friday and Cyber Week sales like no other.

In 2020, the Black Friday and Cyber Week sales period will be like no other. The impact of lockdowns, severe questions over consumer confidence, the ability of the logistics network to cope with demand and the pressure on retailers to keep the tills ringing after the annus horribilis for the High Street all make this a unique kick-start to the festive spending spree.
