In an era where privacy concerns still matter, would you exchange details about your personal hygiene—or, for that matter, how many trash bags or sponges you use—if Alice.com guaranteed that you would get better prices, never run out, and never have to shop for them again? As it turns out, millions of people would.

Instead they can count on Alice.com for any of six thousand different products made by 125 manufacturers.
