Monsoon Commerce Enhances Product Capabilities for UK Merchants

New release supports broad product categories plus wider distribution in the European marketplace.

EMERYVILLE, CA—April 18, 2012— Monsoon Commerce, Inc., a leading provider of online marketplace and e-commerce business solutions for mid-sized merchants, announced today enhanced product capabilities to benefit UK merchants. With new release features that support merchant sales for a broad set of product categories plus extended support in the European marketplace, Monsoon Commerce offers UK sellers an opportunity to significantly increase sales and improve operational efficiency. The new version of its powerful solution is currently in beta release, with general availability scheduled for mid-May.

Monsoon Commerce has established itself as the premier solution for UK merchants to profitably sell books, music, videos, and DVDs on multiple marketplaces. New product capabilities will allow UK sellers to apply the powerful marketplace selling features offered by Monsoon Commerce to a broad set of merchandise categories, including Beauty, Consumer Electronics, Sports and Fitness, Toys and Games, and Health and Personal Care. Through additional category support, UK merchants using Monsoon Commerce solutions can expand their product offering and increase their market potential.

In addition, Monsoon Commerce now offers UK merchants more efficient access to European marketplaces, including eBay and Amazon. Merchants using Monsoon Commerce solutions can take advantage of Amazon's unified EU marketplace and FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon), making it easier to reach a wider audience and easily manage inventory across regional marketplaces. Through a centralized system, Monsoon Commerce users can efficiently manage FBA and locally warehoused inventory of all product categories across multiple marketplaces.

"Enhancing our technology to better support our UK sellers has been a priority for Monsoon Commerce," said Peter Bohnert, senior vice president of engineering for Monsoon Commerce. "Our focus in development is building product functionality that leverages the strengths of key marketplaces. The end goal, always, is creating opportunities for our clients to grow sales and increase efficiency, which these new capabilities reinforce."

UK merchants interested in learning about general merchandise and EU market opportunities are invited to attend the Monsoon Commerce UK Summit in London in April 2012. Keynote Chris Poad, director of Amazon UK Merchant Services, will provide sellers with insider information on how to best leverage FBA in the EU. All UK Summit seminars, plus a networking reception, are free to attendees. To register for the event, please visit the event web site.
