As an overseas online shopping expert, have you been bored and tired of the usual shopping website in the past two years when you cannot travel abroad? Today, let Buyandship introduce you to Zappos, a US online shopping platform whose catalogue is countless!
Nick Swinmurn came up with the idea of Zappos from a personal shoe-buying experience. In 1999, Nick tried to find a pair of Brown Airwalk Desert Chukka Boots in a shopping mall in San Francisco. He couldn’t find a perfect fit that was neither the correct colour nor the right size. Due to the disappointment, Nick wanted to establish an online retailing platform that can help save one’s time searching for their ideal shoes. Soon after, Nick quit his job to focus on developing an online store business and founded Zappos in the same year.
After years of development, Zappos has transformed from a boutique online shoe store to a large online shopping mall with various products and the most extensive online shoe store in the US. Nowadays, you can find thousands of footwears and countless clothing brands, fashion labels, sportswear, and even household items on Zappos. Most of the brands available on Zappos are from Europe and the US, such as Polo, Tommy Hilfiger, The North Face. An online shopping expert like you shouldn’t miss out!
