                             UNCONDITIONAL GUARANTY

         For and in consideration of the loan by COMERICA BANK-CALIFORNIA
("Bank") to Priority Fulfillment Services, Inc. and Priority Fulfillment
Services of Canada, Inc. (collectively, "Borrower"), which loan is made pursuant
to a Loan and Security Agreement between Borrower and Bank dated as of March 28,
2003, as amended, modified or restated from time to time (the "Agreement"), and
acknowledging that Bank would not enter into the Agreement without the benefit
of this Guaranty, the undersigned guarantor ("Guarantor") hereby unconditionally
and irrevocably guarantees the prompt and complete payment of all amounts that
Borrower owes to Bank and performance by Borrower of the Agreement and any other
agreements between Borrower and Bank, as amended from time to time (collectively
referred to as the "Agreements"), in strict accordance with their respective

         1. If Borrower does not perform its obligations in strict accordance
with the Agreements, Guarantor shall immediately pay all amounts due thereunder
(including, without limitation, all principal, interest, and fees) and otherwise
to proceed to complete the same and satisfy all of Borrower's obligations under
the Agreements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Guarantor
agrees that its obligations hereunder include all obligations and liabilities
for which Borrower would otherwise be liable to Bank were it not for the
invalidity or unenforceability of them by reason of any proceeding involving
Borrower under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law.

         2. If there is more than one guarantor, the obligations hereunder are
joint and several, and whether or not there is more than one Guarantor, the
obligations hereunder are independent of the obligations of Borrower, and a
separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against Guarantor
whether action is brought against Borrower or whether Borrower be joined in any
such action or actions. Guarantor waives the benefit of any statute of
limitations affecting its liability hereunder or the enforcement thereof, to the
extent permitted by law. Guarantor's liability under this Guaranty is not
conditioned or contingent upon the genuineness, validity, regularity or
enforceability of the Agreements.

         3. Guarantor authorizes Bank, without notice or demand and without
affecting its liability hereunder, from time to time to (a) renew, extend, or
otherwise change the terms of the Agreements or any part thereof; (b) take and
hold security for the payment of this Guaranty or the Agreements, and exchange,
enforce, waive and release any such security; and (c) apply such security and
direct the order or manner of sale thereof as Bank in its sole discretion may

         4. Guarantor waives any right to require Bank to (a) proceed against
Borrower or any other person; (b) proceed against or exhaust any security held
from Borrower; or (c) pursue any other remedy in Bank's power whatsoever. Bank
may, at its election, exercise or decline or fail to exercise any right or
remedy it may have against Borrower or any security held by Bank, including
without limitation the right to foreclose upon any such security by judicial or
nonjudicial sale, without affecting or impairing in any way the liability of
Guarantor hereunder. Guarantor waives any defense arising by reason of any
disability or other defense of Borrower or by reason of the cessation from any
cause whatsoever of the liability of Borrower. Guarantor waives any setoff,
defense or counterclaim that Borrower may have against Bank. Guarantor waives
any defense arising out of the absence, impairment or loss of any right of
reimbursement or subrogation or any other rights against Borrower. Until all of
the amounts that Borrower owes to Bank have been paid in full, Guarantor shall
have no right of subrogation or reimbursement for claims arising out of or in
connection with this Guaranty, contribution or other rights against Borrower,
and Guarantor waives any right to enforce any remedy that Bank now has or may
hereafter have against Borrower. Guarantor waives all rights to participate in
any security now or hereafter held by Bank. Guarantor waives all presentments,
demands for performance, notices of nonperformance, protests, notices of
protest, notices of dishonor, and notices of acceptance of this Guaranty and of
the existence, creation, or incurring of new or additional indebtedness.
Guarantor assumes the responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of
the financial condition of Borrower and of all other circumstances bearing upon
the risk of nonpayment of any indebtedness or nonperformance of any obligation
of Borrower, warrants to Bank that it will keep so informed, and agrees that
absent a request for particular information by Guarantor, Bank shall have no
duty to advise Guarantor of information known to Bank regarding such condition
or any such circumstances. Guarantor waives the benefits of California Civil
Code sections 2809, 2810, 2819, 2845, 2847, 2848, 2849, 2850, 2899 and 3433.

         5. Guarantor acknowledges that, to the extent Guarantor has or may have
certain rights of subrogation or reimbursement against Borrower for claims
arising out of this Guaranty, those rights may be


impaired or destroyed if Bank elects to proceed against any real property
security of Borrower by non-judicial foreclosure. That impairment or destruction
could, under certain judicial cases and based on equitable principles of
estoppel, give rise to a defense by Guarantor against its obligations under this
Guaranty. Guarantor waives that defense and any others arising from Bank's
election to pursue non-judicial foreclosure. Without limiting the generality of
the foregoing, Guarantor waives any and all benefits and defenses under
California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 580a, 580b, 580d and 726, to the
extent they are applicable.

         6. If Borrower becomes insolvent or is adjudicated bankrupt or files a
petition for reorganization, arrangement, composition or similar relief under
any present or future provision of the United States Bankruptcy Code, or if such
a petition is filed against Borrower, and in any such proceeding some or all of
any indebtedness or obligations under the Agreements are terminated or rejected
or any obligation of Borrower is modified or abrogated, or if Borrower's
obligations are otherwise avoided for any reason, Guarantor agrees that
Guarantor's liability hereunder shall not thereby be affected or modified and
such liability shall continue in full force and effect as if no such action or
proceeding had occurred. This Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be
reinstated, as the case may be, if any payment must be returned by Bank upon the
insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of Borrower, Guarantor, any other
guarantor, or otherwise, as though such payment had not been made.

         7. Any indebtedness of Borrower now or hereafter held by Guarantor is
hereby subordinated to any indebtedness of Borrower to Bank; and such
indebtedness of Borrower to Guarantor shall be collected, enforced and received
by Guarantor as trustee for Bank and be paid over to Bank on account of the
indebtedness of Borrower to Bank but without reducing or affecting in any manner
the liability of Guarantor under the other provisions of this Guaranty.

         8. Guarantor agrees to pay a reasonable attorneys' fee and all other
costs and expenses which may be incurred by Bank in the enforcement of this
Guaranty. No terms or provisions of this Guaranty may be changed, waived,
revoked or amended without Bank's prior written consent. Should any provision of
this Guaranty be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be
unenforceable, all of the other provisions shall remain effective. This
Guaranty, together with any agreements (including without limitation any
security agreements or any pledge agreements) executed in connection with this
Guaranty, embodies the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to
the matters set forth herein, and supersedes all prior agreements among the
parties with respect to the matters set forth herein. No course of prior dealing
among the parties, no usage of trade, and no parol or extrinsic evidence of any
nature shall be used to supplement, modify or vary any of the terms hereof.
There are no conditions to the full effectiveness of this Guaranty. Bank may
assign this Guaranty without in any way affecting Guarantor's liability under
it. This Guaranty shall inure to the benefit of Bank and its successors and
assigns. This Guaranty is in addition to the guaranties of any other guarantors
and any and all other guaranties of Borrower's indebtedness or liabilities to

         9. Guarantor represents and warrants to Bank that (i) Guarantor has
taken all necessary and appropriate action to authorize the execution, delivery
and performance of this Guaranty, (ii) execution, delivery and performance of
this Guaranty do not conflict with or result in a breach of or constitute a
default under Guarantor's Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws or other
organizational documents or agreements to which it is party or by which it is
bound, and (iii) this Guaranty constitutes a valid and binding obligation,
enforceable against Guarantor in accordance with its terms.

         10. Guarantor covenants and agrees that Guarantor shall do all of the

             10.1. Guarantor shall maintain its corporate existence, remain in
good standing in Delaware, and continue to qualify in each jurisdiction in which
the failure to so qualify could have a material adverse effect on the financial
condition, operations or business of Guarantor. Guarantor shall maintain in
force all licenses, approvals and agreements, the loss of which could have a
material adverse effect on its financial condition, operations or business.

             10.2. Guarantor shall comply with all statutes, laws, ordinances,
directives, orders, and government rules and regulations to which it is subject
if non-compliance with such laws could adversely affect the financial condition,
operations or business of Guarantor.

             10.3. At any time and from time to time Guarantor shall execute and
deliver such further instruments and take such further action as may reasonably
be requested by Bank to effect the purposes of this Agreement.


             10.4. Guarantor shall not transfer, assign, encumber or otherwise
dispose of any shares of capital stock or other equity interest Guarantor may
now have or hereafter acquire in Borrower.

         11. This Guaranty shall be governed by the laws of the State of
California, without regard to conflicts of laws principles. GUARANTOR WAIVES ANY
STATUTORY CLAIMS. Guarantor submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state
and federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned Guarantor has executed this
Guaranty as of this 28th day of March, 2003.
