MerchantAdvantage Joins ProStores Developers Network

MerchantAdvantage's Channel Management With Chanalytics(SM) Enables Merchants to Cost-Effectively Send and Analyze Catalog Feeds to Any Shopping Destination Site

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- MerchantAdvantage, LLC is proud to join ProStores Developers Network as a software developer who has created an innovative, ProStores-compatible solution to help online merchants further maximize their ProStores web store. ProStores online merchants now have access to an affordable solution to send, monitor, and analyze the cost effectiveness of their catalog feeds seamlessly to any and all shopping destination sites. Through the ProStores Developers Network, members are developing tools that will provide ProStores merchants with expanded functionality. MerchantAdvantage is proud to be a part of this network and give the small- to mid-size business merchants the sophisticated capabilities that often were thought to be out of their price range.

Channel Management is a powerful dashboard software application that sits on the merchant's desktop, giving her/him the power to manage their entire product catalog to ANY shopping destination site immediately and without third party assistance. Chanalytics(SM) then gives those same merchants immediate statistical feedback on how their products are performing on shopping comparison and destination sites. Empowered with this information, the merchant can, for the first time on their own, understand the value of their feeds and react to it, in real time. Merchants do not need to rely on expensive third-party services and can review reports that guide them to manage their channel product feeds more efficiently. By sending only their best performing products to a given channel, merchants are empowered to identify non performing products more quickly. The result is higher return on investment, immediate control of channel feeds, and real time feedback on what is cost effective for pay-per-click or revenue-based shopping comparison and destination sites. Chanalytics(SM) is offered FREE as an integrated feature in MerchantAdvantage's market leading Channel Management tool.

ProStores, an eBay Company, enables small- and medium-size businesses to establish e-commerce sites quickly and cost-effectively. ProStores allows merchants to create professional, full-featured online storefronts, customized with their own branding and domain name. For more information about ProStores, please visit
