Moonbasa and ITA to Bring U.S. Fashion Brands to China

Partnership Provides New e-Platforms for Brands Interested in Selling to China

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Aug-09 — /EPR SMALL BUSINESS/ — The International Trade Administration (ITA) has partnered with Moonbasa, a large China-based e-commerce company, to support a digital platform dedicated to U.S. brands interested in selling to the Chinese market. This will provide U.S. companies with an opportunity to open a web store on Moonbasa’s e-commerce platform, and also give them an opportunity to participate in a three-day online-to-off-line (o-to-o) experience at Moonbasa’s flagship digital store in Shanghai.

According to Kim-Bang Nguyen, Director, Export Promotion and Strategic Business Alliances for the Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) at ITA, “China is a difficult market to penetrate, especially for small- and medium-size businesses. We believe Moonbasa, an e-commerce platform with a dedicated ‘U.S. Brand Mall’ and full-service commerce solutions, is an effective way for these businesses to create a new channel of distribution in China.”

Moonbasa is a China-based fashion-only e-commerce platform with an all-inclusive turnkey service. It launched a ‘U.S. Brand Mall’ last year supporting more than 25 small-to medium-sized U.S. brands. Such brands currently on the platform include Ocean Current, Taylor and Sage, Janet Chung, Band of Gypsies, and Halo. An o-to-o operation, Moonbasa is slated to open 15 more brand stores this year.

Moonbasa will be exhibiting at WWDMAGIC in the Las Vegas Convention Center August 15-17 in booth 73500 Central Hall, and welcomes U.S. fashion brands to learn about this opportunity. Brands can also contact Barbara Graff, bgraff@moonbasausa.com or Kim-Bang Nguyen, kim-bang.nguyen@trade.gov

DIRECT CONNECT CONTINUES TO ACQUIRE SALES OFFICES WITH PURCHASE OF FLORIDA ISO

CHANTILLY, VA, March 15, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Direct Connect today announced that it has acquired another payment processing sales portfolio, Merchant Processing Solutions (MPS) in Fort Lauderdale, FLA.

direct connect logo

This transaction is part of Direct Connect’s commitment to growth through acquisition and is the company’s sixth acquisition since being recapitalized by The Beekman Group in 2015.

MPS provides merchant services to more than 500 restaurants and retail businesses across the United States, with more than $100 million in annual processing volume.

Owned jointly by Yamilet Strauss, Claudia Mosley and Diana Lizarazo, the independent sales organization (ISO) is a perfect fit for the Direct Connect business model: it is an active retail ISO acquiring merchants on the First Data platform, but it needed the financial and technological infrastructure and support to compete in today’s rapidly-changing payments infrastructure.

“MPS has grown successfully because of their people, and their top-down commitment to providing service and support to customers,” said Matt Clyne, Direct Connect’s CEO. “Direct Connect adds financial strength and stability, state-of-the-art technology and highly experienced human resources to the mix, making for an unbeatable combination and assured growth for MPS.”

Clyne said Direct Connect purchased five companies in 2015 and has already laid the groundwork for three more acquisitions in the first half of 2016. Direct Connect continues to actively seek out sales offices with low attrition and a commitment to the highest levels of service and support.

ISOs interested in investment capital or acquisitions opportunities are invited to visit www.directconnectps.com or contact the company at 800.747.6273.

“We intend to be a very active buyer in the marketplace,” Clyne said.

About Direct Connect
Based in the Dulles Corridor of Northern Virginia, Direct Connect provides innovative technology and payment processing services to businesses across the United States and Canada, including retail, restaurant, government contractors and service industries. Through a robust partner program, Direct Connect works with financial institutions, non-profit organizations, associations and software developers to incorporate payment solutions and enhance customer service. With a 20+-year history and more than 25,000 merchants in its portfolio, Direct Connect was recapitalized in 2015 by The Beekman Group, a New York City-based private equity firm positioning us well to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry.

New Player in the Market Will Compete with LinkedIn

Rumors have abounded about Masterseek.com’s professional profile site’s imminent introduction to the World Wide Web. Still under development, it boasts the world’s largest business database with over 145 million personal professional profiles from around the world—that’s more than LinkedIn which is currently estimated to have just over 125 million professional profiles.

What makes Masterseek’s profile database so competitive?
Masterseek is already the largest B2B search engine, with 40 million more businesses listed than the nearest competitor and growing at a faster pace. Masterseek.com’s service is free, like most similar databases. Where it differes is in its ability to allow businesses full control over their profile. In addition the actual search functions are more intuitve, with more accurate local results or global results if that is the user’s search preference.

This is what has attracted so many businesses, and so many professionals to the website. Upon launch Masterseek.com’s professional profile section is fully expected to perform as well as the business search portion of the site. It seems to be the natural evolution of a business search engine, that it should incorporate professional profiles as well. However other sites have not done so, at least not to this degree. There in lies the power of Masterseek, and why it is expected to replace LinkedIn at some point in the near future.

How will Masterseek’s professional profiles work?
Currently it is very similar to LinkedIn it looks like. As of now the primary difference is in the numbers. Masterseek already has more, and if past growth is any evidence it will soon be one of the new places to search for professionals. Masterseek’s site is also free and it gives users control over their own profile. It is expected to use Masterseek’s primary search engine application from the business listing side of the site. If so expect it to have faster, more complete, more specific and more accurate search functionality both locally or for any specified geographic search.

We got a hold of Masterseek President Rasmus Refer who preferred not to comment on current plans,

“We are working on many new activities with the objective to become the largest global provider of business information, but cannot tell you more about our plans right now” –Rasmus Refer

Despite details being kept close to the vest, we have dug up a number of key points:

• Masterseek will have more profiles right off the bat as mentioned, 145M to LinkedIn’s 125M.
• It will use a different search platform, if it is the same as the Business Listings section it will be faster, more accurate and more comprehensive locally and globally.
• Listings will be 100% free.
• Those making a profile will have as much or more control to share information than those using LinkedIn.

Small Businesses Must Capitalise On Mobile Sales Boom

Britain’s leading online parcel delivery specialist has called on small businesses to take advantage of the boom in sales through smartphones.

Recent research has shown that more and more consumers are prepared to buy products through their mobile phones and are enjoying the freedom that mobile shopping offers. Bolton-based Parcel2Go helps businesses of all sizes organise shipping to countries across the world and suggests that small firms should take a proactive approach when it comes to building an online presence.

People are now using their mobile phones to do so much more, from surfing the internet to using social networking sites. Figures released last week by online research specialist comScore revealed that 13.5 million mobile users across France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK accessed mobile retail sites in the three months ending May 2011. In Britain, the number of smartphone users accessing mobile sites has increased by 163 per cent over the past 12 months.

Online retail site eBay expects global mobile sales to hit $4bn by the end of 2011, double the value of goods sold in 2010. The UK market has been one of the fastest adopters of the technology and an increasing number of businesses now find they have to meet eBay parcel delivery requests following purchases made via mobile phones.

Richard Mercer, Director of Marketing at Parcel2Go, said: “There is little doubt that the retail world is changing rapidly. Smartphones have become commonplace and consumers in the UK have adopted m-commerce technology quicker than many people would have anticipated.

Foreign Translations, Inc. Wins Small Business of the Month Award From Greenville Chamber

Foreign Translations, Inc. (www.foreigntranslations.com) is the proud recipient of the Greater Greenville Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Month award for October 2010. Foreign Translations, Inc. began in 1998 in a spare bedroom in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as a supplier of Italian translation services. The company moved to Greenville in 2005 and in just the past few months increased staff by 40%. It expects to add even more local employees over the next year.

After 15 years working in large Fortune 500 companies in New York and Florida, Ken Zwerdling, founder and CEO, recognized the opportunity of a global business and having control over his future.

BT Business IT Support Manager Battles Printergeist

UK businesses clocked up a massive 22,000 calls to BT Business IT Support Manager between January and March 2009, and sales doubled over the period, as more small businesses look to down-the-line IT support rather than risk downtime during the recession.

BT Business IT Support

Over the three months, the bulk of calls were requests for network and mail assistance, with email help triggering more than a quarter. Virus and security issues alone prompted nearly 10 per cent of BT Business IT Support Manager help desk contact.

While most operating system, server and back-up issues are easily resolved, BT Business took a little longer to solve some of the stranger customer requests. One customer was convinced that a poltergeist was changing the print server settings, one didn’t plug in their router’s power because it was wireless, and another asked for help to cut a CD to fit a PC floppy drive.

Andy Dell, general manager, IT services, BT Business said: “Most IT problems will flummox the best of us, but there is a serious message behind these funny stories. In the current economic climate firms can’t be off line for any length of time so we’d advise customers to refer to a team of dedicated experts who are fully equipped to deal with the problem. We are experiencing new highs in the volume of requests for help, as more and more of our customers rely on PCs to run their business.”

A dedicated business service, BT Business IT Support Manager is a business service for personal computers running either MacOS or Windows. BT advisors provide straightforward, jargon free, advice and support over the phone. The team of BT computer experts provide a cost effective alternative or enhancement to an in-house IT support team, and can fix problems by accessing a computer remotely through the customer’s broadband connection – whether from BT or another ISP.

USBSwiper.Com Allows Businesses To Affordably SWIPE And Process Credit Cards Out In The Field Using Only A Customer’s Laptop And An Internet Connection,

Newly-developed USBSwiper offers Customers the unique opportunity to simply, easily and securely process customer credit cards with true mobility. Customers can simplify their businesses by being able to swipe credit cards anywhere whether at their store location or out in the field using only the customers Laptop, Internet Connection, USBSwiper software interface and magnetic card reader and the PayPal merchant processing system.

Richard Freedkin was a small business owner with a big problem. As a Real Estate investor and consultant who traveled the country conducting seminars and selling his books, he was wasting time and losing business whenever he typed in customers’ credit card information into PayPal’s virtual terminal by hand at each of his workshops. He needed a simple way to swipe credit cards at any seminar or convention location with only his internet connection and laptop.

When he asked developers in an online forum about available credit card swipers that were compatible with PayPal, everyone said it couldn’t be done except for 25-year-old Drew Angell, a certified PayPal ACE developer. Just over 6 months later, the pair founded AngellFree, Inc., and officially unveiled the only PayPal compatible credit card swiping solution at the annual Ebay Live! event in Chicago.

“I needed a product like this for my business, and thousands of other business people also need and are looking for something like this too. Other Wireless or Mobile Credit Card Solutions are just too expensive,” said Freedkin. “It was a situation where necessity was the mother of invention. Because of USBSwiper, I can now process payments for 30 to 40 of my books in just a few minutes and I have all of my reports and records centralized in one place. The best part is that unlike other merchant credit card processors, the money is deposited into my account instantly.”

The USBSwiper software, along with USBSwiper’s compatible magnetic card reader, can be used on both Mac and PC platforms. Unlike applying for and using merchant credit card processors, using USBSwiper in conjunction with PayPal will save small business owners merchant credit card processor fees, paperwork, time, lost interest, and lost fees during refund transactions.

“All you need is a computer with an internet connection and you’re set to go,” said Freedkin. “We’ve seen USBSwiper utilized by kiosk owners, microbreweries, artists, airport curbside checkers, taxi cab companies, and flea market sellers. The applications are endless for the small business owner, especially if you sell products either online, from a storefront, or in person at a customer’s home such as a home improvement or HVAC company. There are virtually thousands of different applications that this will work for inexpensively. Now everyone can enjoy true affordable wireless credit card processing”

The Word is spreading said Angell. “Everyone is so excited about this product, and it makes me feel great to know how much it’s already helped people out and to hear the positive feedback. I’m looking forward to introducing it to so many sellers who could truly benefit from it and grow their business.”

The True Wireless Mobility that this product offers has now sparked Freedkin and Angell to create a national sales force of Independent USBSwiper Representatives who will market the product Nationwide. According to Freedkin, “In this economic climate of Job losses and layoffs, many people are opening up small businesses. This opens up a huge opportunity for many people to create financial freedom by marketing this phenomenal product and to create a great residual income while at the same time, helping those businesses who have wanted to, but could not afford to have wireless credit card processing in the field before.”

One company that is doing just that is Cell Charge, IncRecently, Cell Charge gained global recognition on an Eye on America segment where they were featured for their innovative methods of accepting credit cards. To view the segment you can go to Cell Charge’s website. www.cellcharge.com.

Eye on America showcased how Cell Charge solves client’s issues by enabling businesses to process their customers MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover cards through their existing phone. The segment emphasized the need for easily accepting credit card transactions, especially in light of the fact that 1/3 to ½ of shoppers charge their purchases and don’t carry enough cash for the average transaction. Therefore, businesses realize to get those buyers and to be competitive, they need to offer their customers the ability to use credit. The show also acknowledged that today a tremendous amount of business is now being conducted outside the confines of the office. Fortunately, recent technological advances have also made it easier for merchants to handle these point of sell transactions out in the field.

President of Cell Charge, Dave Garboski, was interviewed for the segment. Garboski stated, “Some small businesses still believe that getting a merchant account is costly and difficult to do. It’s not. At least it’s not difficult with Cell Charge. Since your phone is the only equipment necessary to process transactions, you do not need to buy or lease anything else. Therefore, the high upfront cost of purchasing equipment is eliminated. But perhaps the best feature to businesses, large and small, is the fact that there are no hidden fees or penalties and no contract is needed. In today’s economy that is truly a blessing.”

Eye on America also highlighted one primary difference between Cell Charge and other companies, that being the fees charged. Often when processing credit card transactions there are different fees associated depending on the type of card and also how the card is being transmitted (i.e., swiped, keyed in, etc.). They acknowledged that Cell Charge’s unique method of bundling their packages, alleviated confusion by offering a one-size fits all package plan and bundle plan. This allows businesses to know exactly what they will pay per transaction, with no surprises come bill time.

Progress is a way of life in America, fast moving and constantly changing. With the ability to accept credit cards from anyone, anywhere, anytime, via your phone you have the added advantage to keep up and reach new levels of success.
