ChannelAdvisorÃ¢â€žÂ¢ Platform To Offer Online Retailers Free, Easy Integration to Buy.com
Research Triangle Park, NC – April 2, 2008 – ChannelAdvisor, the leading provider of e-commerce channel management solutions and Buy.com, the Internet SuperstoreÃ¢â€žÂ¢, announced today that the companies will combine forces to implement new software that leverages the ChannelAdvisorÃ¢â€žÂ¢ platform to bring online retailers’ merchandise to Buy.com.
Under the alliance, ChannelAdvisor’s channel management solution will fully integrate with Buy.com’s Marketplace. The integration enables online retailers to list their merchandise and process orders across multiple e-commerce channels, including Buy.com, from a single interface.
ChannelAdvisor will be fully integrated with Buy.com by the summer of 2008. In conjunction with this announcement, ChannelAdvisor will waive all ChannelAdvisor fees associated with selling on Buy.com for a promotional period.
The combined software offerings will benefit online retailers such as Blue Bay Electronics, a leading online retailer of name brand and refurbished electronics, including iPods, cell phones, digital cameras, computer peripherals, GPS and video games.
“Expanding our sales into new marketplaces like Buy.com is important to the future growth of our business,” says Daren Thompson, President of Blue Bay Electronics. “We have been very pleased with the ChannelAdvisor platform and are looking forward to working with them and getting launched on Buy.com.”
