Buckaroo Adds ShareASale, Offers Online Purchasing

San Jose, Calif., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Online shopping just got easier on Buckaroo, the largest hub of local shopping, news and events, with the expansion of merchants from ShareASale, a provider of e-commerce affiliate management solutions for retailers. The partnership offers Buckaroo subscribers a variety of over 2,500 potential merchants touting products like wine, jewelry and furniture.

"Buckaroo subscribers have a better variety of shopping now than they did a few months ago," said Alan Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of Buckaroo's parent company Iron Speed, Inc. "Our shopping categories show users the latest products sweeping the nation, along with the local store in their area."

The addition of ShareAsale businesses give Buckaroo users the comfort of shopping directly from a smartphone or without leaving the computer chair. Buckaroo enables retail companies to market themselves in front of thousands of people who receive Buckaroo's daily e-newsletter, "What's Hot". The newsletter is designed to blend product deals with daily news and other local infotainment in order to replace harsh advertisement while also giving "mom and pop" shops a different kind of local marketing potential.

"Regardless of whether the business is online or a brick and mortar store, owners can create compelling ads on Buckaroo and reach a specific audience in an efficient and relevant way," commented Fisher. "This way, the smaller, local guy isn't limited or overshadowed by bigger business."

Since May 2011, Buckaroo has represented over 5,000 local and online businesses. Additionally, users who sign up for a free account can post their own items for sale, classified services or general community announcements.
