buySAFE Partners With E-Commerce Storefront Solutions Provider 3dCart

3dCart Merchants Can Integrate the buySAFE Trust Seal and Bonding Services to Boost Consumer Confidence and Conversion Rates

ARLINGTON, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 23, 2007 -- buySAFE, Inc. (www.buysafe.com), the leading trust and safety company for e-commerce transactions, today announced that it has partnered with e-commerce solutions provider 3dCart (www.3dCart.com), allowing merchants that use 3dCart's shopping cart software to seamlessly integrate the buySAFE trust solution into their websites. 3dCart provides completely hosted storefront and checkout solutions for more than one thousand small-to-medium businesses.

buySAFE certifies and monitors online merchants -- identifying qualified merchants with the buySAFE Seal -- and uses surety bonds to guarantee merchant transactions for online shoppers. The buySAFE trust solution will be available to 3dCart merchants -- completely free of charge -- as an integrated feature for the company's Basic, Standard and Standard Plus editions of its software. Merchants using 3dCart need simply qualify for buySAFE and activate a control in their administrative dashboard in order to begin using buySAFE. Once activated, merchants will display the buySAFE Seal on their websites -- which boosts customer confidence and improves e-commerce site conversion rates -- and will also be able to offer their customers the ability to bond their purchases at checkout.

"We are thrilled to partner with 3dCart in offering their merchants a powerful solution for increasing website conversion," said Jeff Grass, buySAFE CEO. "By integrating the buySAFE trust solution, 3dCart merchants can let shoppers know that they are trustworthy and reliable, which makes these shoppers more likely to buy. This higher conversion rate results in greater revenue and greater profits for merchants every single month. Best of all, the solution is completely free to 3dCart merchants."

"Helping our clients succeed in an increasingly competitive online world is our mission," said Gonzalo Gil, president of 3dCart Shopping Cart Solutions. "Partnering with buySAFE gives our clients an additional way to differentiate themselves and build trust and confidence, while at the same time increasing their conversion rates."

To qualify for a buySAFE Seal, merchants must pass the rigorous buySAFE certification process, which ensures they are trustworthy, reliable and committed to delivering on the terms of the sale. Consumers that make a bonded purchase from a buySAFE Merchant receive a surety bond backed by Travelers®, ACE USA® and Liberty Mutual® that guarantees -- up to $25,000 -- that all terms and conditions of the sale will be met. The buySAFE Seal helps ensure that online shoppers will have a safe and worry-free shopping experience.

buySAFE will be available to 3dCart customers beginning in April 2007. Current 3dCart customers interested in being considered as beta testers for buySAFE should send an e-mail to 3dcart@buysafe.com.
