SHOP.COM, the e-commerce platform of the global product brokerage and internet marketing company Market America, has ranked #18 in Internet Retailer’s 2017 Mobile 500. This award, which recognizes the 500 most prominent global masters of mobile e-commerce, establishes SHOP.COM as a true heavy-hitter in the ever-evolving landscape of digital retail and online shopping. Arriving amidst an influx of critical acclaim and financial prosperity, the latest accolade for the e-commerce juggernaut cements the company’s status as one of the pioneers of the future of online shopping.
The way people experience the internet is changing, and since such a substantial percentage of global purchases are made online, that means their shopping habits are changing as well. With an entire world available to each and every one of us at our fingertips, more and more of our time is spent on our smartphones, which is where we make many of our purchases. According to Internet Retailer’s report, 38% of all e-commerce sales were made on a mobile device in 2016 alone. That trajectory shows no signs of stopping, and mobile sales on SHOP.COM and other Mobile 500 websites are on pace to grow 53% in 2017 — an astounding $220 million.
SHOP.COM is proud to be among the elite class of digital retailers driving this tremendous growth, and its position at #18 in the rankings proves that the site has gone above and beyond in demonstrating leadership and expertise in providing the ultimate shopping experience on mobile devices. “Not only are the retailers ranked in the all-new 2017 edition of the Internet Retailer Mobile 500 beginning to design for mobile-first,” says the Internet Retailer report, “they’re also exploring the early capabilities of bots and artificial intelligence, and sampling a fresh and growing crop of mobile tools offered by Google and Facebook.”
SHOP.COM continues to deliver on the customer-focused, experience-enhancing features that define the company’s ethos, including its signature spending-into-earning savings program, the Shopping Annuity, and its generous Cashback Program, which has awarded almost $45 million to date in cash back to shoppers on most purchases made to the site. But more than that, SHOP.COM is committed to innovating on the technological front. It is one of the 300 of the Mobile 500 to have a mobile app, and it continues to adopt new methods and techniques for meeting customers wherever they shop.
