Despite the rapid growth of online commerce, an estimated 90% of manufacturers do not sell online and 66% identified channel conflict as their single biggest issue hindering online sales efforts . These manufacturers must either decline involvement in Internet sales or risk destruction of the established distribution channels at the core of their businesses. Rather than circumventing these valuable channel partners, the manufacturer¹s challenge is to build a new online sales channel which complements the existing channel structure. The growth of the internet is expanding the potential range of complex channel relationships that must be managed. Reshare enables the manufacturer or distributor to sell directly to the end consumer without circumventing the valued channel partners.
