KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2015 / Lexaria, Corp. (LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the "Company") is very pleased to announce that ViPova(TM) tea will soon be available for sale at Amazon.com and other online retailers.
"We expect to have ViPova tea available for sale at the world's largest online superstore," said Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka. "We know we need to make our products more widely available and we couldn't be more proud than to start at the top, with the world's best online retailer."
Small businesses like ViPova, world-class retail brands, and individual sellers increase their sales and reach new customers by leveraging the power of the Amazon.com e-commerce platform. Amazon.com strives to be Earth's most customer-centric company and serves consumers through a focus on vast selection, price, and convenience. At peak times, Amazon USA sells as many as 426 items per second, or 36.8 million items in a single day. Some reports have indicated that 80-90 million Americans shop at Amazon.com every month. During 2014, Amazon.com reported full year revenue of approx. $88.9 Billion.
Although not available at Amazon today, Lexaria believes it is important to provide disclosure regarding this important pending development as it would mark a potentially significant new sales channel, and availability at Amazon.com should be imminent. Lexaria continues to open sales channels for its ViPova (TM) brand, making progress consistently as to the number of online locations where consumers can access our premium products. These efforts are ongoing and beginning to be productive.
As well, Lexaria has awarded an initial 6-month Search Engine Optimization (SEO) contract designed to increase the visibility of its online brands and support its online retailers and sellers. This SEO contract has already commenced and is expected to provide steadily improved visibility in the months to come, and will be part of our growing efforts to build brand recognition and interest in our products.
Vipova(TM) encourages other retailers, either online or brick-and-mortar, that wish to carry our ground-breaking products to contact us by email at email@example.com for distribution information.
