Rye Brook, NY-January 31, 2011-Online shoppers can now find more discounts, deals and selection on TheFind.com thanks to a new partnership with eBillme(TM), a safe and secure way to pay with cash online using online banking and walk-in locations. Starting today, products that are available for purchase using eBillme for checkout will be added to TheFind's online shopping search engine bringing new deals and discounts to shoppers who spend with cash. And for eBillme's network of over 800 online merchants, it's an opportunity to reach new customers and generate sales.
"Shoppers come to TheFind because we offer the most complete selection of products available and because we help consumers not only find what they want, at the best price, but also decide the best place for them to buy either online or locally," says Rob Ulvelling, Senior Director of Business Development at TheFind. "With eBillme, we are able to work with additional merchants and consumers who have a preference for cash transactions along with great deals and discounts."
When customers search for a product on TheFind they will be presented with additional offers available only to eBillme customers and merchants.
"Providing these special incentives using this channel is a great way for us to attract new customers," says Michael Fox, CEO of eFaucets.com. "This effort compliments eBillme's ability to drive customers beyond our website and add to our bottom line."
eBillme is the most secure way to pay with cash online offered by over 800 online retailers. When shoppers choose the option at checkout, their order is confirmed with a bill sent to their e-mail address. Consumers simply pay the bill the same way they pay utilities, loans, insurance, and other bills, either through their online bank account or at one of over 75,000 walk-in locations. Every purchase made using eBillme offers buyer protection features, including satisfaction guarantee, best price, and fraud protection in addition to a cash-back rewards program for shoppers to earn up to 5 percent cash-back on purchases. Frequent deals are offered to online shoppers on eBillme merchant sites, the eBillme Debt-Free Mall, and now on TheFind.com.
"Today's consumer values quality, convenience and best pricing," says Samer Forzley, Vice President of Marketing at eBillme. "That is the beauty of what TheFind has created for online shoppers. It's a one-click search engine for price comparison and finding the best deals from across the Web. Shoppers who pay with eBillme not only benefit from a debt-free shopping experience but they also shop securely, save money and earn cash-back rewards. Now that eBillme deals will be available on TheFind, we hope to bring these benefits to more online shoppers."
