PHOENIX, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- ( -- Pinnacle Cart, an ecommerce solution offered by Desert Dog Marketing, LLC, today announced they are offering their online shopping cart solution through the Parallels Partner Marketplace.

The Parallels Partner Marketplace is a key component of Parallels Small Business Panel and allows service provider partners to rapidly and easily monetize their small business customers by selling commercial applications in a revenue-share model with Parallels. Host partners can easily and quickly deploy applications and service offerings with no development effort of their own through either a co-branded Parallels Storefront or Direct Reseller Storefront that Parallels provides in the Parallels Small Business Panel. Parallels will take care of the setup, provisioning, licensing, billing and management aspects. Small business customers utilize the Parallels Partner Marketplace directly from their control panel and can self-serve hosted and desktop applications with a few clicks of the mouse.

As the only shopping cart offered in Parallels Partner Marketplace, Pinnacle Cart will offer the same robust features and functionality that have already been deployed to tens of thousands of users worldwide.

As a turn-key option for hosting companies, the opportunity for hosting companies to increase revenue per customer has never been easier. "We couldn't be more excited to be the Partner in Parallels Partner Marketplace," says Mike Auger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle Cart. "We went through an arduous review process to become the Shopping Cart provider. To stand out among our peers in this highly competitive industry speaks to the quality of our platform."

"Parallels is uniquely addressing the needs of small businesses and redefining the way control panels are used with the development of Parallels Small Business Panel. Over 100 cloud services providers are already launching the solution, so it's clear that this is striking a chord with Parallels' partners who are seeing the benefits for their small business customers," explains Jack Zubarev, President of Service Provider Division at Parallels. "Parallels continues to enable cloud services providers to move beyond basic hosting services and offer value-added applications and services."
