REI says it’s climbing with Mercent

Mercent, the Seattle e-commerce service provider with an Amazon.com pedigree, has given REI’s online sales a boost, the companies announced today.

In the first 90 days after the outdoor cooperative plugged Mercent’s system into its back-end retail management system last year, it saw an 11 percent overall increase in sales on the channels handled by Mercent.

I should note a potential conflict of interest: I’m still waiting to see the results in my annual REI dividend.
