Juno Launches Internet Shopping Channel

Juno Online Services Inc. launched Shop@Juno, an Internet shopping channel for consumers who visit Juno's portal site on the Web.

The shopping site draws on a network of 47 marketing alliances between Juno and various e-commerce Web sites including 1-800-FLOWERS, Art.com, Bluefly, Crutchfield and Garden.com.

Shop@Juno categories range from apparel and automobiles to toys and hobbies. Shop@Juno will be actively marketed to the millions of people who use Juno's services each month, as well as featured as a prominent link on Juno's home page.

Juno said it adds revenue with up-front payments from individual merchants, revenue-sharing, and per-click fees earned when consumers link from the Juno site to an allied site.

Juno is a provider of Internet-related services to millions of computer users throughout the United States. The company offers several levels of service, ranging from free, ad-backed basic dial-up Internet e-mail to full access to the Web.

Since the launch of Juno's basic e-mail service in April 1996, 7.6 million total Juno accounts have been created.
