San Luis Obispo, CA (Vocus) September 9, 2010
Shopatron today announced a partnership with TheFind as part of its new Shopatron Affiliate Network.
TheFind, which sees more than 25 million visitors to its shopping site each month, is a major addition to Shopatron’s growing network of affiliate partners – a list that includes Google, Bing and other affiliates that send targeted, purchasing customers to Shopatron’s more than 700 merchants and 12,000 fullfillers.
“We are excited to have TheFind as a key partner for our affiliate network,” said Sean Collier, CIO at Shopatron. “This partnership significantly benefits our merchants, extending their brand presence by sending product information to many additional shoppers through the broad reach of TheFind.”
“Many of our merchants do not have the resources to pursue the use of affiliate channels on their own,” added Collier. “Shopatron has implemented this network using partners such as TheFind as a way to incrementally increase online sales at no additional cost to our merchants. The Shopatron Affiliate Network is another example of the ‘power of many’ from a hosted platform at work.”
TheFind puts products, stores, sales and discounts at the shopper’s fingertips by crawling the Web to find the best prices, locations or hard-to-find items, utilizing its patented search technology. More than 400 million products from more than 500,000 online merchants are accessible through TheFind.com, TheFind Mobile, and TheFind iPhone App.
The partnership also facilitates “local” product search, using Shopatron’s local product availability data, along with mobile product information for Shopatron’s 600-plus mobile-optimized stores on TheFind’s mobile product search network.
“Just in time for the holidays, we are excited to partner with Shopatron on the common objective of delivering more and better qualified shoppers to merchants’ doorsteps,” said Rob Ulveling, senior director of business development at TheFind. “By adding product, merchant and brand information from Shopatron to TheFind, merchants and brands will benefit because our 25 million shoppers will have the most up-to-date and accurate information on the latest products, pricing, sales and availability.”
