It’s taken many people working in harmony to help accomplish our UK expansion, and few have played a more critical role in this endeavor than John Pincott.
Based in England, John is one of the original SHOP.COM founders, and is currently our Country Manager for Market United Kingdom.
We had the opportunity to sit down with John, to find out more about the man who is leading the way for British expansion.
First tell us a little bit about SHOP.COM UK and joining the MA family?
The merger of SHOP.COM into Market America has been incredibly smooth, thanks to the hard work in both camps, and the amazing fit between the companies and people. When we started SHOP.COM as a destination shopping site, we never imagined we’d get the chance to really know our customers and provide a One to One service – until we met Market America. The synergy created from bringing our strengths (web savvy, tech strong, high traffic) together with MA’s (great products, amazing customer reach AND “high touch” as JR would say) is a recipe for great success.

As I drove to my Grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving yesterday, I passed a few retail stores with massive lines of people – who were camped out for the Black Friday deals. I thought to myself as I drove by, “don’t these people know about the Internet?”
Sure, in years past waiting in line for the best holiday deals was standard practice, but as we move further from the Stone Age, the idea of waiting in line seems so passé. I do all of my Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping online through SHOP.COM for a few very simple reasons.
Call me crazy, but I kind of like getting Cashback on the things I buy. Read More
Finding the right gifts for our loved ones shouldn’t be an experience we dread – but let’s face it, for many of us Holiday Shopping can be a real nightmare. Between standing in line for hours, fighting the crowds, and wasting gas driving back and forth to stores – Holiday Shopping can be stressful on you and your pocketbook.
Each year, more and more people are beginning to appreciate the benefits of doing their holiday shopping online. Last season alone, shoppers spent a whopping 30.8 Billion dollars shopping online for the holidays. I myself had an online shopping epiphany a few years back, while standing in line at Macy’s for 3 hours struggling to hold onto about 40 pounds of gifts (half of which I eventually returned anyway).

In a recent interview with a leading fashion site for women, Shefinds.com, actress, producer and TV personality La La Anthony shared her secret for saving time during the holidays – shopping on SHOP.COM. La La recently wrapped up a performance in her first off-Broadway show Love, Loss, and What I Wore, based on the novel by Nora Ephron. As the busy wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony and mother to her four year-old son Kiyan, La La knows how important saving time and money is and loves the idea of getting cash back on your holiday shopping.
“If someone only gets $50 to $100 cash back, it really makes a huge difference–and then they can get other gifts with it,” says La La. Read More

Good evening, and what an extraordinary evening it was. The scheduled National Conference Call with Senior Vice President Loren Ridinger and myself was totally maxed out at 1000+ lines. We apologize for the inconvenience. In fact, the lines were so maxed out before the 9:30pm start time, we could not get in to the host conference line to start on time. Loren finally was able to get through when Sam Pitts got through and three-way called Loren into the conference for a short 15 minute presentation. Sad to say, I could not get through.
The good news is, so many business partners were anxious to learn more about how to increase their Internet sales, and how to be effective Internet Marketers. Read More
