Warrior Forum launches e-marketplace that taps on existing members' reach

Warrior Forum, an Internet marketing community and marketplace, has launched Warrior Payments, an all-in-one payments, analytics, affiliate marketing and distribution platform which the company hopes will transform the way people sell products and services online.

Matt Barrie, Chief Executive of Freelancer.com, which acquired Warrior Forum in April 2014, said, "If you are an entrepreneur or startup, and trying to figure out how to launch your product or sell your product or service online, then Warrior Forum is the #1 platform to help you do this."

Warrior Payments integrates payment processing*, online product delivery, analytics, affiliate marketing and distribution. It handles customer management, customer feedback, and connects with preferred mailing list services like MailChimp and AWeber to automatically add customers who purchase a product to the seller's email lists. Warrior Payments also allows sellers to provide special limited time offers to create a sense of urgency around a product launch.

Barrie added that every product or service listed in the Warrior Forum marketplace can be sold via Warrior's existing network of over 780,000 Internet marketers, who can now request a payments link to sell the item.

The new feature comes with detailed analytics on how these products and services are selling, including which products are best-sellers or have the highest margins. Warrior says that this means marketers can weigh how successful a product is even before taking it on. 

Alaister Low, Warrior Forum Director, said, "Warrior Forum is the home of the world's top Internet marketing experts and entrepreneurs, like Noah Kagan (#30 Facebook.com, #4 Mint.com & Chief Sumo, App Sumo) and Matt Bacak (2010 Internet Marketer of the Year). Warrior Payments will flip the traditional world of sales inside out by exposing the analytics of how things are selling in real time and it will turn the power of the Warrior Community's 780,000 experts into your very own sales force selling your own product or service. Without a doubt, Warrior Payments will redefine the way people sell products or services online."

To celebrate the launch of Warrior Payments, Warrior Forum is launching a competition, giving away US$20,000 in cash. The top seller on the platform will take home US$10,000 and the title of 2014 Warrior Internet Marketer of the Year, and the top affiliate marketer will also take home US$10,000 cash and the title of 2014 Warrior Affiliate Marketer of the Year. Competition details can be found at www.warriorforum.com.
