Introducing: PinPointing

PinPointing is the newest way to discover Zappos products based on a Pinterest user’s pins! Look up any Pinterest username and check out the breadth of fun products we think that user will love based on their pins and boards. If you’re digging what you see, you can pin them directly to your Pinterest boards. Or if you find yourself feeling like pinning won’t satisfy your shopping bug, go ahead and check out the product details and other similar products.

Stumped on what to get your friend for their birthday? Search for your buddy’s Pinterest username and we’ll show you products your friend might like. Imagine their bewilderment as they unwrap their gift revealing that special something that reflects their unique style perfectly!

So how do we do this? For each Pinterest user, we look at their pin descriptions and board names. We then match the keywords with hundreds of thousands of Zappos products and show you the products with a common theme. If you pinned a neon purse, we may recommend other neon products you might like. If you have a board called My Future Wedding, we’ll show you the perfect dresses and accessories for that special occasion.

What are you waiting for? It’s time for some pinteresting discoveries. Start pinning and exploring now! START PINPOINTING!

Zappos at 2012 Bay Area Maker Faire

We all know Zappos.com is more than just shoes and quirkiness, and we had so much fun showing that at the 2012 Bay Area Maker Faire!

We hacked an Xbox Kinect® to let people virtually try on some of our clothes without the need to belly-suck. We also had some fun boxes chock-full of costumery for us to play dress-up and just release that inner child (and no, we don’t mean free child birthing).

We took photos and gave away $100 Zappos.com gift certificates to the top three crowd favorites. Congrats to our three winners below!
