ARLINGTON, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- buySAFE, Inc. (www.buysafe.com), the leading trust and safety company for e-commerce transactions, today announced that the buySAFE Certified Merchant program is now available to online merchants using the Cart32 (www.cart32.com) suite of e-commerce products.

Cart32 is a leading e-commerce solutions provider, offering shopping cart checkout software and other storefront hosting solutions to thousands of domestic and international online merchants.

buySAFE certifies and monitors online merchants, identifying qualified merchants with the buySAFE Seal and using surety bonds to guarantee online transactions. The buySAFE Seal signals that online sellers are trustworthy, reliable and committed to delivering on the terms of the sale. Starting today, Cart32 merchants can make buySAFE a part of their checkout process, helping increase confidence and improve site conversion rates. buySAFE's integration with Cart32 follows recent integrations with several other e-commerce solutions providers including Zoovy and MIVA Small Business Solutions.

"Cart32 is a premier e-commerce solutions provider, and today's launch gives thousands of its online merchants the chance to easily integrate buySAFE's trust signal and bonding services into their online stores," said Jeff Grass, buySAFE CEO.

We believe buySAFE is the best solution for increasing e-commerce trust and improving sales opportunities for our merchant partners."

The buySAFE Seal is the strongest trust signal in e-commerce. To qualify to display the 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.
