Macromedia announced a customized version of Macromedia Contribute 3 that simplifies online store creation and customization for eBay Store sellers.

Contribute is a visual desktop application that empowers non-technical users to easily create and update online content. This special version of Contribute provides eBay Store sellers with a powerful way to create and customize their eBay Store without requiring technical knowledge. The solution is expected to be available by mid-November. eBay sellers can sign up to be notified when the product is available.

"eBay Stores is an online selling solution that is used by hundreds of thousands of sellers to build their own customized online store," said Julian Green, senior manager of eBay Stores, eBay. "Macromedia Contribute for eBay lets sellers easily build and customize their eBay Store to reach millions of buyers on eBay. This combination empowers a whole new class of sellers to deliver high-quality and highly efficient online stores."

"Contribute is used by leading organizations worldwide to put more effective web publishing into the hands of users with less technical skills," said Erik Larson, director of product management, Macromedia. "Bringing instant publishing with professional quality to eBay's community of online merchants will help them as they create and maintain their stores. The integration accomplished by our partner WebAssist demonstrates the power of the eBay API and the flexibility of the Contribute product platform."

eBay Store sellers will be able to create and manage their store from within the Contribute application. By offering an intuitive visual editing environment that does not require any programming skills, Contribute allows non-technical users to create a rich online store design with no learning curve. The software includes easy-to-follow, step-by-step wizards, so any eBay user can quickly design and publish a professional store featuring logos, images, descriptions, product categories, product showcases, and product search.

To accelerate eBay Store creation, this version of Contribute will ship with more than 800 professionally designed templates for common eBay Store pages. Contribute users can customize these templates or create their own from scratch and then publish them to their eBay Store with one mouse click. Contribute translates the store design into standards-based code that renders consistently across all popular platforms and browsers. A detailed article on specific product features and how eBay Store sellers will benefit from this version of Contribute is available in the Macromedia Developer Center .

eBay is a Gold Sponsor of Macromedia MAX 2004 and this special version of Contribute 3 will be demonstrated in both the eBay booth (#214) and highlighted in the MAX keynote during the Contribute demonstration.

Macromedia is a member of the eBay Developers Program. As a member, their application is enabled by the eBay application programming interface (API) and certified by the eBay Developers Program.
