Maximizing Your SHOP.COM Experience
Key to our promise at SHOP.COM is that we will do everything we can to help you satisfy all your shopping needs as quickly and easily as possible. This section will help you to maximize the ease with which you can find and buy products in our marketplace, as well as help you understand the special services available to you while shopping here.
Finding What You Need at SHOP.COM
Whether you're looking for a red cashmere sweater, pale blue eye shadow or deep green emerald earrings, finding the products you need on SHOP.COM should be as intuitive and familiar as working with a trusted and knowledgeable salesperson at your favorite store.
We encourage you to start shopping on SHOP.COM by typing the name of the product, brand, or store into the search box on any page. Our intelligent search engine will then find and present you with an extensive selection of merchandise and stores that best match your request.
Narrowing your results is easy. Simply click on the desired values in the navigation guide that displays above your results. Only those items that fit your additional criteria will be displayed. You may also search within the results shown on a page at any time by typing your request in the search box to the right of the guided navigation links.
Limiting Search to a Particular Merchandise Category
If you would like to ensure that your search is performed within a specific category of merchandise, simply choose the category name from the dropdown to the left of the search box, type in what you are looking for, and click "Find.
Limiting Search to a Particular Merchant
To find only products offered by a particular merchant, search for that merchant's store or catalog by entering the merchant's name into the search box. If the merchant is a catalog merchant and has just one catalog, we send you directly into it. Otherwise you will be able to choose from a list of that merchant's catalogs. Once you're within a store or catalog, the dropdown next to the search box will automatically display that store or catalog name and limit your search to just those products within the store or catalog you are viewing.
You need a gift. You want it to be special, to express that perfect sentiment the recipient will truly appreciate.
Or you need a gift today because you forgot about a special someone's birthday. Or perhaps you want to be reminded when that special event is two weeks away so you don't forget. Or you want to set up a registry for your own special event.
SHOP.COM's Gift Options provides you with a host of services to satisfy all your gifting needs. These include:
- eGifts: Our unique virtual gifting service that lets you send really amazing gifts to anyone.
- Gift Registries: Where your gift recipients can tell you what they really want or need.
- Date Reminder Service: Remember all those special dates in your life with this easy to use service.
- SHOP.COM Gift Card: Send a quick, electronic gift card to your gift recipient. Simple and immediate - what could be better?
Imagine giving that special someone a beautifully-wrapped gift box that, when opened, would display a variety of hand-selected gifts tailored just for them, any one of which they could choose? A SHOP.COM eGift is the next best thing! It is a virtual gift box that can hold an unlimited number of gift possibilities. You select any number of possible gifts for an individual - for a special occasion or just because - at a specific price. You then send this personalized gift box containing all these options to your gift recipient via an email with an eCard attached. When they open the gift - voilá - they can see all these options (without the price shown) and select the one gift they like best. The gift they select is then shipped directly to them. Your credit card is billed automatically.
eGifts are a great option when you're not sure exactly what to get, when you lack information about that person's preferences (e.g. size or color), or when you need a last minute gift literally up to five minutes before it has to arrive.
Have a special gift-giving need, such as a wedding or anniversary? Or just want to let someone else know about an item that would make your day if it magically appeared? SHOP.COM's gift registries let you do just that. We provide you the ability to set up gift registries for special events like weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays, and add products to those registries from any merchant participating in SHOP.COM's marketplace.
Can't remember those important dates in your life and not yet wealthy enough to afford a personal assistant to handle remembering for you? Let SHOP.COM do it for you! Set the event, the date, and the reminder time of an important event and we'll notify you when you ask. SHOP.COM helps you have the right gift or card there on-time.
