Many of the web's most successful online merchants trust Channel Intelligence to help ensure the growth and success of their businesses. Given buySAFE's value proposition of connecting shoppers who want risk-free shopping with the best merchants on the web, it was an obvious choice for buySAFE and CI to align.
Arlington, VA. and Orlando, FL. (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
buySAFE, Inc. announced today its selection of Channel Intelligence (CI) as a Product Syndication integrator for the buySAFE Bonded Shopping Network (BSN). This relationship enables the premier retailers using CI's SellCast™ Retailer Solutions the ability to list their products on the Bonded Shopping Network. The BSN is the first online advertising network that brings together shoppers interested in risk-free shopping with merchants seeking a risk-free way to advertise online.
The combination of the hundreds of millions of SKUs across CI's merchants with the unique power of the BSN to direct shopper traffic creates two major shifts in the market. First, CI merchants can now select a channel with millions of new shoppers and, second, buySAFE shoppers will now have easy access to a enormous selection of inventory from many of the most recognized brands online in an entirely risk-free shopping environment.
buySAFE has established itself as the world leader in risk-free shopping through its Bonded Merchant program. The buySAFE Seal on qualified merchants' websites tells shoppers that they are dealing with the most trustworthy and reliable merchants. buySAFE backs this endorsement with a comprehensive bond guarantee. The buySAFE Seal identifies Bonded Merchants to shoppers almost one hundred million times each month, which in turn helps Bonded Merchants to enjoy 5-15% higher conversion rates.
The Bonded Shopping Network expands buySAFE's position as the leader in risk-free commerce. The BSN is comprised of the buySAFE Shopping Advisor™, a revolutionary desktop shopping application which makes shopping online completely safe and secure, buySAFE's own shopping engine (http://www.buysafeshopping.com), and several other popular Internet shopping destinations. Bonded Merchants enjoy the benefits of a risk-free, cost per sale fee structure on the BSN.
