July 25, 2007 ChannelAdvisor Integrates ChannelAdvisor Merchant™ with Paypal Express Checkout
Research Triangle Park, NC – July, 25 2007 – ChannelAdvisor, the leading provider of e-commerce channel management solutions, today announced that ChannelAdvisor Merchant™ now fully integrates with PayPal Express Checkout for purchases in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.
PayPal Express Checkout allows consumers to make safer, easier online purchases by leveraging previously stored shipping and financial information. When consumers choose the PayPal Express Checkout option, they are taken to PayPal’s site to approve payment, and then returned to the retailer’s site to complete their purchases. This seamless process enables tight integration between PayPal and the retailer’s order management procedures.
“Merchants rely on ChannelAdvisor for leading products and services in the e-commerce industry,” said Stephanie Tilenius, vice president of merchant services for PayPal. “We are pleased to be working with them to deliver PayPal Express Checkout and help merchants increase sales by offering a more convenient and safer way to pay online.”
“Integrating PayPal Express Checkout with our website was quick and easy through ChannelAdvisor Merchant,” said Marc Ducey, president of GolfEtail. “Since we started offering this payment option, we’ve had an increased amount of customers taking advantage of its convenience.”
“Our customers look to us to make them stand out in the industry. That’s why we’re constantly adding new features to help them enhance the online purchasing experience,” says Scot Wingo, CEO of ChannelAdvisor. “With PayPal Express Checkout, our customers can offer their buyers even more options to efficiently complete secure transactions.”
ChannelAdvisor Merchant enables retailers to automate labor intensive tasks like inventory management, ad creation and order fulfillment, allowing them to operate strategically, sell more products and become more profitable across multiple e-commerce channels, including eBay, Amazon.com and Overstock.com.
