Marketworks announced it completed its most successful quarter in the company's 7-year history, facilitating over $200 million in sales volume in the fourth quarter. It also had record-setting single-day sales of more than $15 million on "Cyber Monday," the Monday following Thanksgiving. The company said a portion of its holiday-season success could be attributed to the "increased popularity of Amazon's marketplace with buyers and sellers."

Marketworks provides small and mid-sized businesses with a multi-channel ecommerce solution that enables merchants to distribute products and process orders across Internet shopping channels. It said it has added more than 1,000 new customers to its multi-channel solution and expanded its service offerings through relationships with Google, Amazon, NetSuite and eBay.

"Ecommerce revenue has passed the $100 billion mark for the first time ever in 2006 - getting its final push from a 26 percent increase in holiday sales from the previous year," said Ken Powell, president & CEO, Marketworks. "With growth like this, it's easy to see why more and more small to medium-sized businesses are using Marketworks to aggressively expand their online sales beyond their web store."
