uSell and EcoSquid Merge to Form a Leading Cash Commerce Platform

uSell and EcoSquid Merge to Form a Leading Cash Commerce Platform

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. (July 26, 2011) —Upstream Worldwide, Inc. d/b/a uSell.com (OTCBB:UPST), the Cash Commerce Platform™, today announced that it has executed a binding letter of intent to merge with EcoSquid.com, a website that objectively displays and ranks options for trading in or recycling old electronics. This all stock merger comes on the heels of uSell’s recent announcement that it will now help consumers find the highest cash offers from top-rated buyers of cell phones and electronics, a strategic shift from the company’s former role in the electronics buyback market as a direct buyer. For further information on the Merger, see the Form 8-K filed by the Company on July 25, 2011.

“The strategic shift allows uSell to gain operating leverage by streamlining the business operations and eliminating back-end, single-partner risk,” said Dan Brauser, CFO of uSell. “At the same time, this shift offers the potential to lower our acquisition cost which benefits both our customers and our partners and will allow us to more rapidly invest in growth.”

Consumers can offer up a myriad of electronics to sell, including cell phones, tablets, mp3 players, digital cameras and much more. Through uSell’s website, consumers can search for the products they are looking to sell and then uSell helps them get the best price by returning quotes from industry leading buyers. After selecting which service they want to use, consumers are directed to the buyer’s website. The buyer then purchases the unwanted items directly from consumers, providing them fast payment.   With all electronics, once all personal data is erased, they are refurbished or recycled depending on their condition.

“Over the last year, EcoSquid has built an innovative, scalable price comparison engine, while uSell has developed an effective marketing formula to drive consumer awareness in the re-commerce industry,” said Nik Raman, CEO of EcoSquid. “It makes perfect business sense for uSell to drive its customers through our platform in order to guarantee them the best possible price and level of service.”

Convenient and secure, uSell helps consumers avoid the hassle and risk of peer-to-peer sales channels such as eBay and Craigslist. And uSell’s 100% Max Cash Guaranteeä ensures consumers get the most cash for their items or uSell will pay them the difference.
