GoodStorm Opens GoodStorm 2.0 API

Web Developers Can Now Access Ecommerce Functionality and Product Metadata to Display and Sell Books, MP3s, CDs, DVDs and Video Games Online

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 27, 2006 --GoodStorm (www.GoodStorm.com), a progressive ecommerce company, has opened its GoodStorm API release 2.0 giving web developers access to ecommerce functionality and product metadata for selling books, non-DRMed MP3s, CDs, DVDs, and video games online.

The GoodStorm API provides extensive metadata on its massive catalog of products. The MP3 API includes detailed artist, album, and track information -- including reviews and bios -- along with preview clips for every track. The book, CD, and DVD API provides metadata such as artist/author, title, subtitle, annotation, subject, genre, and more. Developers are free to mash-up the music and data in any number of interesting ways.

The best part is that developers can use GoodStorm's purchasing system to allow their visitors to buy or sell any of the products in their mash-ups -- all with GoodStorm's generous and open profit sharing on every product sold. Developers can set their own prices and decide how much revenue they want to earn. GoodStorm provides the inventory management, shipping, logistics, and billing for all transactions. Warehouses staged around the United States are used to ensure quick and cost-efficient shipping. On the MP3 side, developers now have access to 2.5 million tracks from IODA, the Orchard, CD Baby, InGrooves and several other music distributors and labels.

Yobie Benjamin, CEO, GoodStorm, remarked: "One of the greatest challenges of creative developers is a lack of interesting content to integrate into their applications. The GoodStorm 2.0 API gives developers access to some of the most exciting music in non-DRMed format to enhance their current web 2.0 applications."

GoodStorm develops and distributes enhanced ecommerce and marketing tools for free, ensuring everyone can leverage technology's potential. At GoodStorm.com, anyone can launch online stores selling digitally printed T-shirts and other products featuring their own designs. Sellers incur no costs for opening or running a GoodStorm storefront because the e-store tools are free and the shirts are printed and shipped on-demand.
