  • Super Cool G Maps Mashup

    I can't get enough of this. This would be neat to have, if you shipped a few things a day....

    http://www.zappos.com/map/

    It shows what products ship where as they are shipped....

    Cool!

    Is Zappos really that big?

    That map indicates well over a 500 million a year sales?
    I don't buy it.
    It's neat, but, I don't buy it. That map indicates WELL over 1/2 billion in sales per year.

    First I've heard of them...... :rolleyes:

      Mark-

      Oh no, that's what I thought at first, too.

      They are BIGGER than that. How about close to $1 BILLION annually? I'd barely heard of them. This was confirmed in our IRCE Top 500 last year at the conference in Chicago. Amazing, isn't it?

      Their site doesn't look that much different from ours, they just do everything right.

        Look up the Zappos Culture book.. You'll be amazed at their backstory.

          Now, Robb, all you have to do is replicate this success for all of us- we'll make you a very well off man. Easy enough, right?

          This type of "fluff" will be the norm- someday. For now, we ARE happy with 3DCart- in fact, I find features that I didn't know about every month, and I love that!! You can find that in ANY cart for this price.

          Put that in your testimonials and send over the check, k?

            A little off topic, but Zappos related.

            I have a VIP account at Zappos where you get free overnight shipping with every order.

            My wife ordered some boots last night at about 9pm central time. This morning, there is a shipping notification in my inbox. I click the tracking number and the shoes are on the truck for delivery today!

            That is fricken amazing! I have ordered stuff at 7-8pm before from them and gotten in next day, but 9pm is of the charts!

              Yeah, I love Zappos. I have bought all my shoes from them for the last 4 or 5 years and they are an amazingly well run ecommerce company. A model for us all.

                Wow, thats pretty impressive! Now if only they sold more than shoes. My fiance ordered shoes there last week and they randomly upgraded her to overnight delivery for free.

                I have Amazon Prime, which is pretty neat but overnight would be incredible. I should be able to order toilet paper and a dvd and have it the next day :)

                Sincerely,

                  Uline is similar.
                  Same day shipping if you order by 6:00pm ! :eek:
                  Also, their order management system is amazing. They have UPS trucks parked at their facility and process the orders directly onto the trucks on weekends so they are already "shipped" come monday morning.
                  Great service, too!
