Zippi Expands to Meet Increasing Demand in 2009, as National 24/7 Call Center Support Goes Live to Support 877-Go Zippi Services

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2008) - Zippi Networks, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ZIPI), turning America's "Clutter into Cash," today announced its partnership with nationally acclaimed call center provider Apple Tree Answers, Apple Tree has built a solid reputation and has been awarded ATSI's Award of Excellence from 2004 - 2008, an Inc. 500 fastest growing company status for three consecutive years, as well as several other notable achievements in the call center market place. Zippi's partnership will leverage Apple Tree's service excellence to provide the highest quality service along with convenience for consumers without the limitation of time zones, for all 877-Go Zippi hotline callers.

Zippi provides a service that is much needed in today's ever changing economy, and by building awareness of the Zippi service the company anticipates it will begin to see a very organic type of growth in the amount of "Zipsters" (home based business owners) that will be eager to join the network and service these consumers. There are two groups of target customers for Zippi, those with items to clear out and turn to cash, and those who wish to sell those items for a commission. In many cases Zippi has found that one consumer may fit the profile of both, with product of their own to sell as well as many friends and family, Zippi manages the entire system and allows them to profit from product sales and their very own home based business.

Robert A. Rositano Jr., CEO Zippi Networks, Inc., stated, "Our message is very timely and our business model is sound, shining the spotlight on our service now requires that we are prepared at an operational level to handle the calls, and that is where Apple Tree comes in. Zippi has always been all about 'Clutter Out...Cash In' which means providing a consumer with a hassle free way of checking the eBay value of a particular item or items lying around the house, then scheduling a pick up and sale of that item. It is only now that our front end service can scale nationally on a 24/7 basis, which is very big for many consumers in today's economy. Best of all we are finding that leading with the 877-Go Zippi services provides us with a road map of how quickly we need to expand 'Zipster' growth in specific markets. With pre-screened items priced and queued up for sale in the Zippi pipeline, it will truly make the proposition of becoming a "Zipster" and home based business owner that much more attractive, we are very excited about 2009."
