record-breaking sales for business partnerships
August is the hottest month of summer, but business partner sales were even hotter!
As you know, we've added five new business partners since August 2008: eBay, Akademos (TextbookX.com), Better World Books, and Coutts. We also nearly doubled our business on Half.com, and expanded our Barnes & Noble partnership to include sellers in the United Kingdom and Europe. As a result, we're thrilled to report that your sales through business partners this August were more than 30% higher than they were in August of last year.
We know that growth of more than 30% is astounding—especially in this economy—but we're not stopping yet: We'll be adding more new partners through the end of the year. Be sure to check next month's newsletter for launch announcements.
Congratulations to all on what's going to be our best back-to-school season ever, and thank you for choosing Alibris.
