Online digital marketplace Zipidee launches public beta, raises funding

Zipidee, a company that lets you sell digital information through an online marketplace, is launching its public beta service tomorrow.

The service is targeting musicians, videographers, researchers or anyone else with digital information — that people are willing to pay for. Sellers create accounts with Zipidee, upload and display their digital goods on the Zipidee home site, or in a Zipidee widget on their own site. Buyers make direct online purchases through the Zipidee system. The company offers its own DRM service, which it sees as being most useful for providers of educational materials, and other niche information. Our previous coverage here.

The San Francisco company has also raised an unknown amount of funding from Novus Ventures, Individuals’ Venture Fund and Khalda Development.
