In May, 2010, TheFind.com overtook Yahoo’s Shopping search engine as the number two product search engine.

One feature that makes The Find unique is its coupon section. Consumers no longer have to go to a different coupon sites such as www.retailmenot.com to locate coupon codes.

If a sale is made through The Find, merchants must split the revenue.
