Quidsi Adds Pets to Its One-Stop-Online-Shop

US-based Quidsi, Inc., which was acquired by Amazon.com for $500 million last year, has announced the latest addition to its growing family of e-commerce sites with the launch of Wag.com, which is billed as ‘the ultimate online destination for the passionate pet parent’.

“Seventy-three million American households count pets as family members, yet only a small portion of those households are ordering pet products online,” said Marc Lore, CEO of Quidsi, Inc. “Today, we’re thrilled to include Wag.com in our family of sites committed to world-class customer service, fantastic selection and lightning-fast shipping.”

The company is well on its way to achieving its mission ‘to make life easier for consumers’  – Wag.com will feature more than 10,000 products for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles and other small animals and shares a shopping cart with Quidsi’s other popular sites Soap.com, Diapers.com and BeautyBar.com, offering customers a quick and easy way to place orders across all sites in one transaction.

The launch of Wag.com comes during a period of rapid innovation for Quidsi, with the company also recently launching a first-of-its-kind Facebook integration and cutting-edge hybrid mobile applications.
