GoDataFeed Now Supports Greenzer.com’s Eco-Friendly Shopping Site

Helping Merchants Cater to the Green Lifestyle

Who says it’s not easy being green? With shopping sites like Greenzer, selling green products is not only easy, it helps online merchants capture the growing market of shoppers interested in making more socially and environmentally responsible shopping choices. After noticing a growing trend toward more eco-conscious shopping, GoDataFeed added Greenzer.com, a green shopping site that promotes and simplifies earth-friendly shopping.

“Eco-friendliness is a new criteria shoppers are using to buy healthier, better quality products and we find that our website’s educational content both simplify buying decisions and result in higher conversions for merchants.” said Jeremy Arditi, one of Greenzer’s founders. “Consumers are only beginning to realize the tangible personal benefits from living green and we see this awareness influencing the purchasing process on an unprecedented scale.”

While there are a growing number of environmentally-friendly products on the market, many consumers are still trying to make sense of the green terminology and how it can enhance their lifestyle. Greenzer’s comprehensive buyer guides, online videos and product comparisons provide consumers with a well-rounded, balanced approach to shopping eco-friendly products, delivering more qualified shoppers.

“We are excited to work with forward-thinking shopping sites, like Greenzer, to provide merchants with a uniquely green platform to feature their eco-friendly products—giving more qualified exposure to those product lines.” said Ro Grosman, Director of Technical Operations at GoDataFeed. “Greenzer does the research for consumers and offers merchants an innovative way to highlight and sell more environmentally responsible products online.”

To be listed on Greenzer, products must meet one or more of Greenzer’s minimum environmental standards and go through Greenzer’s “Green” filtering process. Greenzer also ranks products on a scale from 1 to 10 according to their “Greenness,” 10 being the most green. By selling green products online, merchants are supporting green businesses and encouraging manufacturers to develop more earth-conscious product lines.

To help merchants increase their online footprint, while reducing our ‘collective’ footprint, GoDataFeed is offering a discounted rate for merchants interested in automating and optimizing their product feeds to Greenzer. In addition, GoDataFeed will setup the Greenzer feed for new clients—at no cost- a $75 value. To learn more about this promotion, contact GoDataFeed at customerservice@godatafeed.com.

GoDataFeed also supports more than 50 shopping channels including Shopzilla, PriceGrabber, NexTag and more.
