Customers delighted with Shopster's mix of eCommerce and Social Networking

Shopster Inc., the leader in e-Commerce software for small and medium sized businesses, announced the winner of their "Customer Experience Survey" draw today. Entrepreneur and Shopster business owner Crystal from Hutchinson, Kansas has won $500 towards building her Shopster business. Crystal is one of 9000 online retailers who have selected Shopster as the platform to build their e-Commerce businesses since the Shopster Network was launched late June 2009.

"This survey solicited candid feedback from a select group of our PowerMerchant customers. What we found out is that this group was very pleased with the Shopster platform and that they planned to invite their friends and colleagues to join," says Sarath Samarasekera, CEO of Shopster.

"Businesses are able to cope with the tough retail climate by working with each other through the Shopster platform. What this means is that some businesses which otherwise might not have even been around now have the opportunity to thrive heading into the holiday retail season," adds Samarasekera.

Shopster uses direct customer feedback to guide its product roadmap. Its "freemium" model allows entrepreneurs to build their online business with no upfront cost and grow their business using the Shopster Network. As a direct result of survey feedback, Shopster has added a new Starter Package to its lineup.

"The PowerMerchant Starter Package was designed for small businesses to build a professional looking store quickly. There are some great small companies out there who need a helping hand; this Starter Package lets them get online and selling right away without the high cost of other systems," says Samarasekera. He adds, "we can do this because we believe that as they grow their business, they will stay with Shopster if for no other reason than this is simply a better way of doing business."
