Dépèche transmise le 13 novembre 2009 par Business Wire

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eCOST.com, a wholly owned subsidiary of PFSweb, Inc. (Nasdaq: PFSW), and a leading multi-category online discount retailer of more than 300k brand-name products from leading technology, electronics, and consumer brand manufacturers, announced that it has launched an exciting new site feature called “Secret Sale”. Working closely with its manufacturer partners, Secret Sale will offer closeout merchandise at prices up to 80% off suggested retail. Access to Secret Sale is free, but is limited to registered customers of eCOST.com.

Secret Sale is an exclusive eCOST.com feature which offers deeply-discounted new, recertified and closeout merchandise. In addition to the unbeatable pricing, many of the offers will also include Free Shipping! Secret Sale will include amazing offers on eCOST.com’s hottest products, including notebooks, home electronics, cameras, LCD TVs, netbooks, iPods, and more. Quantities for each Secret Sale will be limited to a certain number of units per product and once it is sold out, the Secret Sale for that product will be gone forever! New Secret Sales will be offered as frequently as manufacturer supplies allow and, in some cases, multiple Secret Sale offers will be available daily.

“Secret Sale is our most aggressive idea yet to offer manufacturers a vibrant outlet and customers an incredible product price they won’t find anywhere else. Don’t expect these deals to remain a secret for long. Effective today, eCOST.com is now offering access to Secret Sale to all eCOST.com registered customers,” said Gary Guy, President of eCOST.com. “Our beta test of Secret Sale was overwhelmingly positive, with the number of unique visitors to the eCOST.com site jumping more than 75%!”

“The technology behind Secret Sale was developed over the past year by our outstanding team of technology developers and engineers at PFSweb, Inc., including team members from both our Texas and Manila development labs,” stated PFSweb Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Mark C. Layton. “Our deployment of this new technology capability is not only exciting for our eCOST.com manufacturer partners and customers, but also allows us to provide a live example of our private sale capabilities and features to PFSweb’s Service Fee division clients. Using eCOST.com as a launch pad for new technology capabilities allows us to iron out the final wrinkles, test capabilities and scale and then quickly revise, adjust and re-launch new technology. We believe this approach allows us to internally develop key ‘plug in’ concepts at a fraction of the cost to acquire such capabilities from a third party provider.”
