Alibris Partners with Mobify to Launch Mobile Web Site
Smartphone shoppers seeking new and used books and textbooks benefit from optimized Alibris mobile site
EMERYVILLE, CA—November 29, 2010— Alibris, a division of Monsoon Commerce Solutions and the world's most advanced online media marketplace provider for sellers of new and used books, textbooks, music, and movies, and Mobify, the leading e-commerce solutions provider for the mobile web, have announced the launch of a smartphone—and tablet—optimized mobile Alibris web site.
Now, by visiting www.alibris.com from web-enabled smartphones like iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy—as well as tablet devices like the iPad—consumers can browse and buy from the Alibris catalog of more than 120 million new and used books and textbooks. Working closely with Mobify, Alibris designed the site's mobile interface to let users view titles and make purchases quickly and easily—anytime they want, wherever they are.
"We know our student buyers often check textbook prices from multiple sources before they buy, so having a mobile site is the best way for them to shop on the go," says Jeanie Bunker, general manager of Alibris Retail. "We're also very excited to give our thousands of independent booksellers who sell through Alibris the opportunity to reach even more buyers."
Igor Faletski, CEO of Mobify, adds, "Because it's been optimized for smartphone and iPad users, Alibris.com is now a great mobile shopping experience. We're looking forward to seeing increased mobile revenues for Alibris this holiday season."
