Submit a Release

Multichannel Merchant accepts press/news releases for posting, including new product/service announcements, research and findings, customer wins and industry-related job changes within retail and ecommerce. Please don’t send news items from other industries, or releases on consumer products.

Do not submit articles or blog posts, news and announcements only; send contribution pitches instead to [email protected].

Please keep in mind that due to volume, submissions may take a day or two to review before posting.

Although we can’t guarantee we’ll report on or post every item submitted, adhering to the following guidelines will increase your chance of coverage:

  • Keep your releases brief and clearly state who, what, where, when and why in the first two paragraphs.
  • Include a daytime phone number with area code for verification purposes.
  • Identify the organization or individual submitting the release in the fields provided.
  • Add a dateline in bold at the top of the release like this: Chicago, June 10, 2020 – . Also don’t include things like PR Web, Businesswire, etc.
  • If you have an image you want included with the release, send it as a separate attachment to [email protected], and specify which release it goes with.
  • Don’t include things like “for immediate release” or contact details at the top of the release; contacts go at the bottom.
  • Please indicate whether the news is under embargo for future publication, and if so, provide that date.
  • House style preferred: U.S., not US; ecommerce; omnichannel; multichannel
  • Use this format for all quotes: “Our company is very proud of our accomplishments,” said CEO Joe Jackson. “We plan to continue to win. We will also grow our sales exponentially.” Never: Joe Jackson commented, “We plan to continue to win.” Also, always provide attribution, i.e. who is speaking.
  • Don’t use all caps in headlines; capitalize each word except for articles like “a” “the” “and” “at” “as” “of” etc.: Acme Continues to Produce Widgets at a Record Pace
  • Render all percentages as: 38%.
