"AT&T; is clearly the major player in prepaid phone card distribution and technology, and it makes perfect sense that we`d team up with them to provide our new prepaid digital print card to retailers throughout the United States," said Paul Schumer, vice president of marketing and sales for Snapfish.
Since its launch in April 2000, Snapfish has attracted more than 7 million users.
AT&T; PrePaid Web Cents, introduced in April 2003, provides payment for online purchases. Other customers include: Disney Online, Shockwave.com, Cellus USA, Vindigo Studios and CBS SportsLine.com.
