Hi Mynick, 

Firstly, you can buy software directly from the many companies that
write it. Secondly there are many vendors from whom you can buy
software online. I believe it is the second list you are looking for.

Thirdly, if you are looking for ways to market a piece of software
online, I can find the information.

Thanks for the info so far.
To provide you with more feedback, you need to know that my company
develops and sell tools for selling software online in a secure way.
We provide our customers with secure software commerce.
So what we need is 
a: a list of target customers: Who sells software online?
b. a list of software commerce sites. Where do vendors sell their
software (besides their own site).

Thanks

Hi, 

This was not very clear from your initial question. 

a: a list of target customers: Who sells software online? 

The answer to this, as you may already know, is almost every company
that writes software! Even IBM sells software online!

[ http://www-3.ibm.com/software/ ]

I believe the list of prospective customers will include anyone who
wants to set up an online shop.

I will work on this to give you an exhaustive list of software
companies you can approach.

Another thing I noticed during my research is that many online stores
provide links to other online stores! For example, Yahoo Shopping
provided a link to Walmart. When I tried to look for the same page in
Walmart (through it's own URL), the page was unavailable! Just a point
to think about...

b. a list of software commerce sites. Where do vendors sell their
software (besides their own site).

This list I have already been providing you.

As you can understand, it is taking many hours of internet searches
and scanning through possible sites to prepare the list for you.
Therefore I request you to bear with me if the information comes in
many installments!

warm regards
