Digital River Unveils Three New Accelerator Programs for Brands to Quickly Build a Direct to Consumer Commerce Channel

Simply and affordably, brands can stand up an ecommerce store on their platform of choice in a matter of weeks

MINNEAPOLIS – Dec. 21, 2020 – Digital River, the most experienced global ecommerce enabler for established and fast-growing brands, unveiled three new accelerator programs created to help brands stand up a direct to consumer (D2C) commerce channel in as little as six weeks. With a global pandemic continuing to put pressure on retail, a D2C channel is vital to survive and grow. Using one of our three new solutions, brands can connect a front-end commerce platform of their choice with Digital River’s back-end global platform, which combines payments, taxes, fraud and compliance capabilities into a single integrated solution.

“This year has shown how important it is for brands to build and maintain a direct relationship with their customers,” explained Digital River CEO Adam Coyle. “Brands that don’t develop direct customer relationships through a robust ecommerce channel are threatened not only by near-term changes brought on by the pandemic, but also by inevitable long-term changes in customer habits. Shoppers expect choice and ease of buying. Our accelerator programs are built to ease challenges often associated with creating an ecommerce store, helping brands to quickly and easily future-proof their business on a global scale.”

The ability to offer this rich functionality through a single integration is a very enticing proposition for merchants, especially when combined with the reduction of barriers to entry that Spark delivers in terms of time to market, cost of change and skills needed to launch and optimize sales.”
