Rentabiliweb-chiffre-affaires-millions-euros-2012-FFrench digital monetization leader Rentabiliweb announces various new deals with several big e-commerce names across it’s suite of payment, direct marketing, and telecoms solutions. The bulk of their new customers, which include Aquarelle, Betclic, and MODZ, have signed on for their Be2Bill payment solution. Be2Bill is a multicard bank payment solution which has acquired several hundred new customers just 13 months after it’s initial launch, causing massive growth of Be2Bills’s support team from 12 to 80 in little over a year. In speaking of the value that Be2Bill brings its customers, President of Rentabiliweb Europe Thibault Faurès Fustel de Coulanges added:

With improved security, greater flexibility in 3D Secure management, increased marketing optimisation, more options and tracking, better shopping cart conversion rates and fewer abandoned carts, our payment solution is increasingly popular with e-retailers. Be2bill offers them profitability levers that traditional operators do not provide, 

Their direct marketing solution also has demonstrated quite a bit of success of late with several e-commerce names of reference such as Fnac.com, Zalando, Lastminute, Prixmania, Ebookers, Spartoo, Numericable and Marionnaud signed on. Lastly, their interactive telecom solution business had a big win as well, having signed French e-commerce stalwart RueduCommerce.com.

Rentabiliweb is actually a full-service, e-commerce monetization service provider whose various services enable vendors to:

  • Acquire and retain customers through audience generation, targeting and loyalty programs
  • Recover lost or unidentified customers through retargeting
  • Remain in contact with customers via SMS campaigns, telephone and other customer support services
  • Complete, secure, and optimize online card payments and transactions

After 10-years of exceptional growth and still logging €70 million in revenues last year, 2012 marked the first year they experienced a drop in annual revenues and profitability. This drop was due to significant investments they made in their business and, likely, a very tough business climate and increasingly crowded and competive space in all of the areas in which they compete. The signing of these big clients demonstrates that they are braving the headwinds fairly well and, hopefully, will be back on the path to positive growth in the very near future.
