Alibris Sellers Build Community, Earn Easy Cash Rewards
Newly launched Alibris seller stores and rewards programs give independent sellers tools and incentives for building their online businesses
EMERYVILLE, CA—November 20, 2009—Alibris today announced the launch of its Alibris Seller Rewards program, which provides cash rewards to independent sellers at the popular book, music, and movie marketplace. Each Alibris Gold seller now earns cash rewards for each completed order that started on their customizable Alibris seller store.
The Alibris seller stores and rewards programs give independent sellers a distinct economic advantage and feature the following benefits:
- CUSTOM MERCHANDISING AND COMMUNITY-BUILDING TOOLS: All Alibris Gold sellers can customize their Alibris stores with unique merchandising, custom catalogs, descriptive content, membership affiliations, and custom URLs. They can also build community through blog posting on their stores about their specialties and interests.
- EASY 5% CASH REWARDS: An Alibris Gold seller gets 5% cash back for every order placed by someone who started shopping in that seller's customized Alibris store. The cash reward goes to the seller who initiated the shopping visit with their Alibris store's Web address, even if the buyer purchases from another Alibris seller.
- BONUS DEALER DISCOUNTS: Any Alibris Gold seller can earn additional Seller Rewards for their own Alibris purchases. This seller discount enables sellers to purchase new inventory or to place special orders for their customers—all with back-end savings.
- FREE, AUTOMATIC ENROLLMENT: All sellers signed up for the Alibris Gold seller program are automatically enrolled in Seller Rewards.
