However, the buyer is not buying from PriceGrabber, the buyer just places the order through PriceGrabber, and PriceGrabber then passes the buyer's transaction information to the applicable seller. The PriceGrabber Storefronts Service designed to help sellers without their own web site or to help sellers that would rather pay commission only if their merchandise sells rather than a Cost Per Click (CPC) to send traffic to their own web site.
