Goodwill Industries of Greater NY and Northern NJ Seeks to Increase Online Sales to Support its Mission Through a Strategic Partnership With Price.com for Enterprise

New York, NY (April 1, 2019) – Goodwill® Industries of Greater NY and Northern NJ, Inc. is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Price.com for Enterprise, to further its dedication to provide affordable shopping options to the community. With the Price.com for Enterprise white label browser extension developed specifically for Goodwill NYNJ, consumers shopping for new items on other online sites can find used options on ShopGoodwill.com/nynj.

E-commerce sites are constantly looking for innovative and often custom solutions to improve their traffic and conversions. It's no secret that the rapid growth of new customer acquisition tools impacts different industries in different ways. With this new partnership, high-intent consumers will be able to complete their purchase at a more affordable price.

"Goodwill NYNJ now allows consumers to shop online for select high-end items that are found in their stores. Price.com for Enterprise will power the technology that gives consumers a way to seamlessly find items available at ShopGoodwill.com while shopping on other online sites. We are excited to be working with Goodwill NYNJ to help them unlock the value of their marketplace,” said RJ Jain, CEO of Price.com. 

Currently the browser extension is exclusively available for product matching items at Goodwill NYNJ. However, future rollouts of the product will extend the browser extension capabilities to include select inventory from other Goodwill agencies across the United States. There are 161 autonomous Goodwill organizations across the U.S. and Canada.
