SHOP.COM, the e-commerce site of the global product brokerage and internet marketing juggernaut Market America, ranks #65 in the 2018 Internet Retailer Top 1,000: the annual and industry-renowned ranking of the absolute best e-retailers around the globe. According to Internet Retailer, global e-commerce sales in 2018 totaled almost $3 trillion — $2.93 trillion to be exact. That is a nearly 21% jump from the amount of collective revenue generated in 2017, and this rapid, sustained increase demonstrates an overall shifting trend in the habits of shoppers and the channels through which they make the majority of their purchases. This prestigious distinction bestowed on Market America’s e-commerce site by one of the industry’s leading analysts and forecasters places SHOP.COM among the upper echelon of digital retailers — those leading the charge in anticipating, meeting, and surpassing the evolving needs of consumers.
As a leader in e-commerce and customer-focused innovations, SHOP.COM has excelled beyond the standards set by hundreds of competitors by providing online shoppers with a plethora of value-adding features and programs. Their model — drawing inspiration from the mantra of Market America, “powered by people” — is to place the shopper at the heart of the shopping experience, rewarding them for their everyday purchases by putting hard-earned money back in their pockets. The Shopping Annuity® helps shoppers to invest in their future by converting spending into savings on everyday products they already buy. The site’s widely talked about Cashback program, has, to date, paid almost $45 million in Cashback to shoppers on most SHOP.COM purchases. That’s the SHOP.COM difference, and it is what places Market America’s flagship e-commerce site above so many in the industry.
The recognition of Internet Retailer is the bar to clear for any e-commerce platform seeking to establish legitimacy and leadership. As such a crowded market, there’s a lot of noise coming from the digital shopping landscape, with very few luminaries. For SHOP.COM to be identified as one of those luminaries is an incredible honor and a profound validation of the tremendous efforts Market America had invested into revolutionizing online shopping through their own e-commerce platform. From a fiscal perspective, SHOP.COM and other sites like it accounted for more than 50% of global online retail sales in 2018. As the trajectory of online shopping comes into clearer view, both Market America and SHOP.COM are becoming an indelible part of that future.
