BLACKSTONE NOW OFFERS WEB AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Blackstone (www.blackstoneonline.com), one of the nation’s leading electronic providers of prepaid telecommunications products, launched their much anticipated Affiliate program today. According to Angel Pacheco, Blackstone’s chief technology officer, “We are pleased to be expanding our e-Commerce offerings with the addition of an Affiliate Program. This program will enable approved websites to include a link, or click-through, to www.blackstoneonline.com. Each time a visitor clicks from an Affiliate website to Blackstone’s website to purchase items, the Affiliate will earn commissions on product sales. Additionally, the Affiliate doesn’t have to worry about any of the administrative functions, Blackstone remains responsible for product fulfillment, customer service, and tracking sales generated from the Affiliate’s website.” Carlos Rodriguez, director of marketing, adds, “This new program will extend the availability of Blackstone’s products and services to thousands of new customers across the country. Plus, it will increase revenues for existing and emerging websites by giving them the ability to offer a broad array of resources and services.” Blackstone has rapidly become one of the country’s largest providers of prepaid telecommunications products and services with over 300,000 retail locations nationwide. Established and headquartered in Miami, Florida since 1995, Blackstone is privately owned, and managed by a team of executives experienced in payment processing, networking, information services, and telecommunications. Today, Blackstone is successfully merging two industries, prepaid telecommunications and electronic transactions, with the Blackstone POS which integrates the processing of all major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express & Discover Card) and ATM/bank/EBT cards with the sale of prepaid cellular and calling cards into one, easy-to-use POS terminal, to the benefit of merchants and consumers across the United States.
