MSN Launches Shopping Portal

 11:39 am on Oct 19, 2004 (gmt 0)


...More than 93,000 products will be offered, she said, including products from Microsoft's competition.

Microsoft will not receive revenues from sales of products sold through Windows Marketplace, however, Walsh said. Instead, the site will serve as a portal for retail partners. The site will provide reviews from the site users themselves, much like Amazon.com. Microsoft employees will moderate forums and explain how to connect everything together, she said. Eventually, the site will be more tightly integrated with the rest of Microsoft's other online properties, including MSN, whose engineers designed the site.

Is this the Shopping Portal [windowsmarketplace.com]?

"virtual storefront" for hardware and software

Just Computer Hardware and Software?

More here:


It's only for selling MS Windows-compatible hardware and software.

So not that big a deal, certainly not a rival to Froogle/Kelkoo/Dealtime etc.

If people are downloading the windows updates frequently enough they will probably have the 'chance' to "take a look in the windows shop while the patch installs".

Now all I am waiting to see is whether I will need a "windows shopping passport" to download windows updates in the future.

Seems to be some fresh activity on the Shopping Engine issue.
