US shopping search engine TheFind  has received $15m (£7.3m) in third round funding, bringing the total raised by the company to $26m (£12.7m).

Unlike some other shopping search engines, TheFind searches products from as many sources as possible, not just from companies that have paid to be listed, though some sponsored links are included on the site.

The company hopes this will make its product search results more comprehensive than its rivals, as well as producing more relevant search results for shoppers.

The results are visually appealing and easy to scroll through - product images are displayed next to each result, and there are a good range of filtering options provided to narrow down your searches.

TheFind has around 2m monthly users and, according to its website, crawls over 500,000 stores to list over 150m products.

The funding round was led by Bain Capital Ventures and also included Redpoint Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners, both of which participated in the previous rounds.
