Mississauga ON – May 9, 2001: Inline Internet Systems, Inc. through a partnership with Internet Billing Company, Ltd. (iBILL) will be providing the ability to setup an online storefront in an agreement with Trellix Corporation. Trellix Corporation, the leading software and services provider for easy-to-create web sites, provides site building software for such companies as About.com, BizLand, CNET, iVillage, Terra Lycos and others.
"We are extremely excited about this partnership as it significantly increases our market reach with our iHTML Merchant e-commerce software solution for small-medium sized businesses.", says Russ Cobbe, President of Inline.
Through this partnership, iBill Complete, based on the iHTML Merchant software, will be integrated into Trellix WebŪ Express as a Web Gem™ -- a Trellix innovation that allows people to easily add interactivity and specialized content, including e-commerce, merchant affiliate links, site promotion and maps. This gives customers the ability to set up hassle-free, e-commerce-enabled storefronts. The iBill Complete model will handle all banking, risk management, affiliate management and customer service issues for these merchants selling products and services.
By integrating iBill into the Trellix product, Trellix partners can now offer small and medium sized businesses simple e-commerce solutions, such as customized storefronts, which were otherwise out of reach," said Garrett Bender, President and CEO of iBill. "This partnership eliminates the need for web merchants to pay high-priced developers and manage the process of setting up an Internet merchant account."
International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts overall web penetration by small businesses will grow from 33% in 2000 to 70% by 2003. Small businesses with Web sites will more than double, expected to reach 4.5 million in 2003.
