HarperCollins Selects Digital River To Manage Global Commerce And Online Payments For Consumer EBook Sales Of Its C.S. Lewis Titles Across The U.S. And U.K.

Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV) announced that it is powering global commerce and online payments across the U.S. and U.K to support consumer ebook sales for HarperCollins Publishers on its recently redesigned websites at www.cslewis.com and www.narnia.com. The websites, which feature a digital collection of ebooks, are a centerpiece for the leading book publisher’s global campaign, celebrating the life and works of C.S. Lewis. Digital River joined forces with Supadü in building out the complete online shopping experience for HarperCollins’ customers.

“Companies today are looking not only for new channels for establishing direct-to-consumer relationships, but also for increasingly flexible ways to go to market – the comprehensive plug-and-play solution that we have built for HarperCollins accomplishes just that,” said David Woolenberg, Digital River’s senior vice president of global sales for digital commerce. “Our work with HarperCollins is directly aligned with Digital River’s transformation plans to evolve our ecosystem of industry partnerships and expand our leadership presence in software and games across new digital product categories. This includes not only publishing, but also other cloud-enabled services such as subscriptions and usage-based billing models.”

“Offering a direct to consumer option is another way in which we can service our authors and let them engage with their audiences in as many ways as possible,” said Chantal Restivo-Alessi, chief digital officer at HarperCollins. “Whether consumers want to make purchases from a brick- and-mortar store, an online retailer, or from an author brand site, we have a solution to meet their needs and to make our authors’ products accessible to them.”

World Archipelago, a London-based creative technology agency, provided the front end web development for the HarperCollins sites powered by the Supadü CMS platform. The sites are integrated into Digital River’s commerce-as-a-service platform, which is facilitating the ebook transaction, including handling global payments, tax and compliance management, fraud prevention, security and order management.
