Online trading community eBay Inc. signed a deal with Juno Online Services Inc. to be
the exclusive provider of online trading services on JunoLand, Juno’s online
community site, and on [email protected], the company’s new online shopping channel.
Both JunoLand and [email protected] can be reached through links on Juno’s Web portal
site. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.
Juno will promote the new relationship both within the Juno portal and in
banner and pop-up ads that will appear elsewhere on the Juno service. Juno
will also promote eBay in upcoming issues of the e-mail newsletter it
distributes to its members.
“The addition of auction functionality to the roster of Juno services
enhances our user
experience and helps our members take full advantage of what the Web has to
offer,” said Leelila Strogov, a vice president for business development at
Juno offers several levels of service, ranging from basic, ad-backed dial-up
e-mail –which is provided to the user for free — to full, competitively
priced access to the Web. Since the launch of Juno’s basic e-mail service in
April 1996, more than 7.6 million Juno accounts have been created.
