Orem, UT (PRWEB) October 25, 2006 –-
Doba™, a leader in product sourcing, and Affinity Internet, the leading web site, e-commerce and online marketing service provider for web professionals and small businesses, today announced the launch of a Push to Marketplace tool that delivers a seamless product sourcing solution for online retail businesses. The Push to Marketplace tool combines the power of ValueWeb's WebStore powered by Affinity, with the expansive Doba product catalog and allows Doba members to easily sell products through the WebStore platform.
Finding the right products to sell, and populating a web store with appropriate product marketing information has traditionally been time-consuming and complex. The Doba Push to Marketplace tool helps eliminate this hurdle by incorporating the Doba product catalog with Affinity's best-of-class WebStore. Doba members are now able to upload any of the more than 250,000 wholesale products available through the Doba product-sourcing platform directly to a ValueWeb WebStore with just a few clicks. This integration between services eliminates the need for members to copy and paste descriptions, images, and other product information from the Doba product catalog to an Affinity e-commerce site. Once merchandise is uploaded onto a WebStore, merchants can manage their inventory flow from their ValueWeb site.
"We are dedicated to helping small businesses utilize the Internet to expand and grow their commerce," said Jim Collins, CEO, Affinity. "This unique tool will save our members time and will make it even easier for them to place thousands of wholesale products directly into their WebStore."
As one of the largest drop shipping companies in the industry, Doba gives its customers the freedom to make profits without holding and paying for inventory. Doba connects members to a host of suppliers who offer a reliable, consistent source of popular products that are available to be drop shipped directly from the supplier to the end consumer.
Affinity, provides small-and medium-sized businesses with the ability to create professional, full-featured online storefronts that include sophisticated shopping cart and inventory management functionality, as well as provide customized branding and store domain names.
The Push to Marketplace tool is available to all Doba and ValueWeb members and can be added to an existing membership for just $14.95/month. To access the new tool please visit http://www.doba.com or http://www.valueweb.com.
