According to Internet Retailer, 2019 will go down as the year that global consumers spent close to $3.5 trillion online. In an effort to analyze online marketplaces around the globe and discover how these innovative leaders are shaping the future of retail, Internet Retailer ranked the Top 100 global e-commerce sites, which accounts for 95% of global marketplace sales. This year, Market America’s primary shopping website, SHOP.COM was ranked 36th!
As with every other accolade Market America has received recently, its most valued praise continues to come from its global customer base, enjoying access to approximately 300 million products, including Market America exclusive brands and thousands of top retail brands. SHOP.COM is also recognized for the revolutionary features and rewards programs that allow it to deliver one of the most unique shopping experiences of any other marketplace. More than just an e-commerce site, SHOP.COM continues to rank so highly among the world’s best marketplaces because of its focus on providing shoppers with tools that enrich and support numerous aspects of their active lifestyles. Shopping Essentials presents a convenient one-stop-shop for all of life’s daily must-have items; SHOP Local seamlessly connects shoppers with incredible Cashback deals from merchants in their area; and SHOP Travel lets shoppers find great deals on hotels, flights, car rentals and travel packages to book without the hassle.
Most notably, SHOP.COM is the leader in shopping rewards and incentives through its Cashback program, which has, to date, paid almost $45 million in Cashback to shoppers on most purchases made through the site, and the Shopping Annuity®, which allows shoppers to convert spending into savings by earning on the products they already buy.
Now in its fourth edition, Internet Retailer’s Online Marketplaces Report provides insight into the ways that marketplaces continue to disrupt and evolve the landscape of online shopping.
