Employees, clients and media came to celebrate the opening of GSI’s new location in NYC. John Donahoe, president and CEO of eBay, was in attendance and expressed his excitement to the crowd. “We see the consumer is changing the way they engage with brands. They want a seamless shopping experience -- whether it be online or in the store. Retailers and brands need effective demand generation to succeed in this multichannel commerce environment and GSI provides unmatched marketing services to drive consumers to their stores.”

The release stated:
eBay Inc. also plans to integrate Open Graph functionality into its GSI business unit’s Social Media Services framework. This will enable large merchants worldwide to offer their customers similar ways to connect with their friends through shopping, using GSI’s existing Open Graph-enabled content management system. GSI’s commerce platform supports more than 180 retailers in the U.S. and globally, including many leading national brands.
Like my colleague Richard Brewer-Hay, chief blogger for eBay Inc., I have watched eBay move its community-based marketplace into today’s social web over the last couple of years – and now, we’re doing the same at GSI. After Innovate last week, I was anxious to catch up with some of the core team behind GSI’s Social Media Services to learn more about what it all means.

On March 28, eBay Inc. announced that it had agreed to acquire GSI Commerce for $2.4 billion. Today the company announced the closing of that deal. As you may recall in the original announcement a couple of months ago, eBay CEO John Donahoe said:
“We intend to lead the next generation of commerce innovation. The acquisition of GSI, which offers the most comprehensive integrated suite of online commerce and interactive marketing services available, will significantly strengthen our ability to connect buyers and sellers worldwide. Combined with eBay Marketplaces and PayPal, we believe GSI will enhance our position as the leading strategic global commerce partner of choice for retailers and brands of all sizes.”

Convergence. It’s a theme that’s been on the tip of everyone’s tongue at the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition 2011 in San Diego. It’s in keynote speeches and PowerPoint decks; on marketing brochures and booth graphics. Whether it’s the blurring of lines between offline and online commerce via mobile, social and local forces, the impending union of the Web and television, or even the collision of print and digital news media (the themes of the show’s first three keynotes, respectively), convergence is everywhere at IRCE 2011.

Not too long ago you could do an industry round up on ecommerce by looking through a straw. There were two major ecommerce players – Amazon and eBay – and brick and mortar retailers launching Web sites to compete with them and their own stores. Then came search marketing and online payments.
Looking back at what ecommerce became in 2010 requires a much bigger straw. Local shopping, social media, couponing, mobile commerce and private sales became more than words buzzing around ecommerce last year. They became a bigger part of the consumer experience and are quickly becoming core to the segment.
