"Adding Overstock to our list of retail partners offering television commerce solutions reinforces the importance of the television as an engagement and transactional device," said Mike Fitzsimmons, Delivery Agent CEO. "Consumers interact with brands online, on their cellphones and on their tablets -- enhancing the way they can interact via television is the natural evolution."
Overstock, ranked 31 on The Internet Retailer 2014 Top 500 Guide®, is the second mass merchant retailer that Delivery Agent has incorporated into its ShopTV application, further lending credence to the leadership position Delivery Agent has carved out in this category with brands looking to augment and extend their marketing efforts to television viewers.
