Review of Shopbop
Corporate history highlights. Shopbop was launched in 2000. Back then, the store positioned itself as a denimwear specialist. In 2006, Shopbop was acquired by Amazon.com, an e-commerce powerhouse, and was completely revamped. Today, Shopbop carries a diverse array of brands from Cheap Monday to DKNY to Alexander McQueen to 3.1 Phillip Lim. As of time of writing, the Shopbop website is available in eight languages.
Product range. Designer fashion, footwear, accessories, and lingerie.
Pricing. Small accessories and lingerie can cost as low as $25, but most of the items are priced from $65 to infinity and beyond.
Trivia. Shopbop does price matching, if on a case-by-case basis. You have to ask for a price match and then you're obliged to make a purchase immediately if Shopbop manages to match the price. Unfortunately, this is not applicable to clearance sales and special offers, but in all other cases you're well advised to try it.
Originality. First of all, the number of options of categorizing products. The store offers many pathways through their catalogue that are fun to browse. For example, Fashion Finds is a curated selection of items under $200. Second, the wish list search. If you're uncertain about what to give your friend as a present, but you're sure that she has a Shopbop wishlist, just type in your friend's email address and click Search. A wishlist is available for search only if a person who compiled it agreed to make it searchable.
