Wholesale Central and Pinnacle Cart Forge Partnership

Apr 12, 2012

Wholesale Central, the Internet's leading directory of wholesale suppliers, has joined forces with leading eCommerce provider Pinnacle Cart in an effort to make selling wholesale merchandise on the internet easier than ever before. The partnership launched with the latest release of Pinnacle Cart, version 3.7.11, which includes an automated data feed to Wholesale Central's proprietary product search feature.

In addition to the Wholesale Central's product feed integration, the new version of Pinnacle Cart includes new quality templates, an eCommerce widget, and Intuit integration that syncs directly to the user's PC or online QuickBooks account.

Wholesale Central accepts product data feeds from thousands of the web's leading wholesaler suppliers, and makes those products available to buyers from one convenient search box on its home page. "Wholesale Central was the first to offer such product aggregating and sourcing tools for the wholesale industry," remarked Scott Sumner, CEO of Wholesale Central's parent company, Sumner Communications. "Nearly half million wholesale buyers use this free tool each month. The automated Pinnacle Cart integration will now make it effortless for wholesalers to submit their product data, and is expected to dramatically increase the number of products available through our product search tool." <
