Rapidly growing deal marketplace company combines forces with leading eBusiness specialist
BERLIN, June 13, 2013 /CNW/ - GetDeal (http://www.getdeal.com), one of the world's largest deal marketplaces with live operations in 16 countries has partnered with eBusiness leader market.com. The successful and rapidly growing company has now spearheaded the market.com group (http://www.market.com), a one stop shop for eMarketing, ePayments and eCommerce to invest in the independent portal that offers consumers the best discounts on the net.
GetDeal is an international marketplace for deals and coupon codes. The platform founded by Robert R. Bukvic has experienced consistent growth in sales and customer base since launching thanks to its approach of offering customers discounts and coupons at excellent terms. The model has helped the platform become a wide-reaching marketing and sales channel for online retailers and cooperation partners due to its role as a marketplace. GetDeal works like a transmitter and therefore increases the traffic and turnover on the partners' websites.
As part of the investment package, the eBusiness specialist market.com will provide GetDeal with marketing expertise, technical support and a connection to the market.com eCommerce stores known as xt:Commerce (http://www.xt-commerce.com). As a leading provider of shop software solutions, xt:Commerce has built its reputation as a leading software brand during recent years - more than 100,000 online shops already use their popular shop products. The new GetDeal application is based on the Crossrider platform, also a part of the market.com group. Crossrider provides a scalable platform for programmers who can create extensions for the major internet browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari without having to spend time developing extensions for each individual browser.
GetDeal's founder Bukvic explains the clear potential of deal marketplaces: "eCommerce is booming! Companies everywhere are becoming increasingly aware of the potential that coupons have as a marketing tool to increase their brand awareness, acquire new customers and increase sales. It brings the classic ecommerce process to a new level."
The decision for market.com to partner with the Berlin start-up occurred quickly, he adds: "Our strategic orientation with our focus on rapidly globalizing GetDeal is very persuasive. Vouchers are an attention-grabbing and efficient marketing tool that is very successful on the web and perfectly suited to a marketplace for deals."
Bukvic believes that market.com's investment is quite logical as it leverages the eMarketing and technology expertise of market.com to the GetDeal business model. "I am confident that this international eBusiness's faith in our concept will help further our excellent track record, and I look forward to successful cooperation".
