Vendio, a leading provider of sales management and merchandising
services for online sellers, expanded its service platform today by
launching Vendio Web Hosting (www.vendio.com/bin/ref.x/2037237517).
A recent survey conducted by Vendio showed that nearly 50% of its
sellers are looking to build upon their success in online marketplaces
by creating branded stores from which they can sell through multiple
online channels. Vendio?s entrance into the shared hosting market
answers this anticipated need, while positioning the company to take
advantage of a new market opportunity. The new service further
leverages Vendio?s extensive knowledge of cost effective, reliable, and
scalable online solutions as they enter the large and growing market
for general hosted applications.
?Since 1998, Vendio has provided services to help hundreds of thousands
of merchants successfully build businesses on eBay and other
marketplaces,? said Rodrigo Sales, CEO of Vendio. ?Over that time, we
have built our brand as a leading provider of reliable and affordable
services that have scaled with the growth of our customers? businesses.
With Vendio Web Hosting, we are extending Vendio?s services to meet the
growing demands of online merchants and all individuals and businesses
who require an affordable and trusted partner to host their online
presence, content or service.?
Vendio offers a selection of personal and business plans designed to
give individuals and small businesses a simple and affordable solution
to serve any of their online needs — from file and photo sharing, to
online applications and information, to complete websites and online
stores. Plans start as low as $3.95 per month, with up to 4 GB of
storage, 100 GB of traffic, unlimited email, and eCommerce available.
Customers who sign up for a 12 or 24-month plan receive a free domain
and account setup, and all plans come with a satisfaction guarantee.
Vendio will apply its online services expertise to continue developing
additional applications that enhance the Web Hosting platform. These
services will make creating and maintaining websites and online content
easier for all users, including those with limited or no knowledge of
HTML. For merchants using Vendio?s services to sell online, Vendio will
also integrate custom stores in the Web Hosting environment with its
leading online sales management service, Sales Manager Inventory
Edition (SMIE). This integration will enable online merchants to make
their goods available for sale wherever buyers may be shopping online
with the convenience Vendio already offers marketplace sellers. Through
one central inventory, checkout, and post sale management and
communication system, sellers will be able to leverage marketplaces
like eBay, Yahoo, and Amazon, as well as search engines like Google,
and comparison shopping sites. The combined strengths of SMIE and
Vendio Web Hosting will provide more sales opportunities for small
businesses with a minimal investment of their precious time and
