Unbound Commerce today announced selection by Google as a mobile commerce solution provider included in a new Google-led initiative called “GoMo,” which provides retailers the tools and resources they need to make their websites more mobile-friendly.


“Unbound is pleased to have been selected by Google. We are rolling out a new service offering specifically for this program, so retailers that use Google tools can rapidly become mobile-optimized, and track the linkage between Google advertising and incremental mobile commerce revenue generation,” said Wilson Kerr, Unbound’s Director of Business Development & Sales.

Google’s Mobile Ads program allows advertisers to connect with customers on the go, and to drive customer acquisition, conversion and leads, through mobile advertising campaigns. In order to help the 79% of Google’s largest advertisers who still do not have a mobile-optimized site for traffic generated from ads or organic search, Google is working to help businesses go mobile and deliver a mobile optimized site experience for potential customers.

Called gStores™, the new service from Unbound Commerce uses technology to tap into the Google tools retailers already use, like Checkout, Analytics, Commerce, and data feeds. This approach reduces friction and allows rapid and cost-effective build and deployment of mobile retail sites. Mobile sales can also be linked directly to Google mobile ad campaigns. This new service from Unbound was launched in conjunction with the launch of GoMo and retailers of any size can take advantage today, via a tiered service offering.

Retailers can link to gStores™ from the GoMo Resource Center or directly by going to http://www.UnboundCommerce.com/gStores.
