SHOP.COM Partners With GSI Commerce to Expedite Merchant Integration.

GSI Commerce Becomes First e-Commerce Platform Provider Certified for SHOP.COM Marketplace

MONTEREY, Calif. -- SHOP.COM, the e-commerce multi-merchant marketplace with OneCart[TM] convenience, today announced that it has partnered with GSI Commerce Inc., a leading provider of e-commerce solutions, to enable its partner base of online retailers and branded manufacturers to more efficiently and effectively integrate into the SHOP.COM marketplace.

"This tighter and more complete integration of our e-commerce platform to the SHOP.COM marketplace provides GSI Commerce with an enhanced ability to provide our online retail partners with another source of consumer shopping interest and extend the reach of their product offerings beyond their own Web stores," said Steve Davis, GSI Commerce senior vice president of partner services.

Earlier this year, GSI Commerce and SHOP.COM invested engineering resources to build a richer, tighter and more comprehensive data flow between GSI Commerce's e-commerce platform and SHOP.COM's marketplace. As a result, GSI Commerce's online retail partners can now enjoy better exposure to the millions of consumers visiting the SHOP.COM marketplace each week and in return, those consumers have the opportunity to experience the benefit of shopping each online partner's full list of products. In addition to access to a larger product offering, consumers purchasing products from GSI Commerce's online partners, through the SHOP.COM marketplace, now receive timely and complete communications concerning their order status and order processing information.

GSI Commerce is the first e-commerce platform provider to complete SHOP.COM's third-party certification program which was introduced earlier this year to provide better, more complete and more accurate presentations of merchants' offerings in the SHOP.COM marketplace.

"We are constantly investing our resources and experience to help our merchants deliver the robust content required to make purchasing decisions easy for the consumer," said Drew Green, SHOP.COM's vice president of merchant and marketplace development. "In this regard, GSI Commerce is an ideal solutions provider to work with as they are also committed to enhancing the online shopping experience for their online partners' customers."
