Digital River Expands its Global Partner Network with New Partner Programs

Announces partnerships with SheerID, and Yandex.Money

MINNEAPOLIS — June 10, 2014 — Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV), a leading global provider of Commerce-as-a-Service solutions, announced it has expanded its global Partner Network. The expansion includes the introduction of a Marketing Ecosystem, a Payment Program, and a Strategic Alliance Program. Designed to extend the capabilities of Digital River’s SaaS-based commerce platform, the three new partner programs offer online merchants easy access to complementary digital marketing technologies and services, global payments options and support, and preferred system integrators and digital agency partners. In addition, Digital River announced partnerships with SheerID, and Yandex.Money.

Digital River’s Partner Network makes it easy for merchants to integrate best-in-class solutions and complementary technologies via pre-built, plug-and-play configurations and referral relationships. The network has been developed to help merchants accelerate time-to-market and improve ROI. As part of its ongoing plan to expand its Partner Network, Digital River continues to engage more partners. Among the recent partner additions are:

    • SheerID, a provider of real-time eligibility verification solutions, which helps companies protect special offers by instantly verifying customer segments online, including members of the military, college students and teachers. Customers can leverage the SheerID pre-built integration to add eligibility verification services to their existing Digital River powered commerce businesses and private stores.
    •, one of the world’s largest privately held providers of language services and translation-related technologies. Through the partnership with Digital River, merchants can access the GlobalLink® platform to accelerate and optimize global content delivery as part of their worldwide commerce, payments and marketing expansion plans.
    • Yandex.Money, the largest electronic payment service in Russia. The Yandex.Money payment solution allows e-commerce merchants to accept bank cards, e-wallets, mobile payments and cash via payment kiosks. The Digital River integration with Yandex.Money’s electronic wallet, which is well-known and widely used in Russia, allows merchants to accept payments from Yandex.Money’s 16 million registered e-wallet users and is one of the quickest ways for international merchants to start selling to Russian customers.

“We are focused on helping companies find easier ways to stand up and tailor commerce, payments and marketing solutions using category-leading technologies at a fraction of the time and cost typically associated with custom integrations,” said Scott Heimes, Digital River’s CMO. “These recent Partner Network enhancements reflect our ongoing commitment to give our customers’ more flexibility in launching customized commerce solutions.”
