PinPointing – A New Look!

The Zappos Labs team is happy to announce a new version of PinPointing!

PinPointing was initially launched 3 weeks ago and we were incredibly excited about the feedback we got from news coverage and our customers.  

We’re even more excited about this new update.  Some of the things you will find in this update:

A New Homepage

The new PinPointing home page makes it easier to check out our featured pinners.  See what PinPointing recommends for some of Pinterest’s popular celebrities, publications and brands.

We quickly realized not everyone knows their Pinterest username.  Now enter a name or email address and we’ll see what we can find.

What do you think?

Our hope with PinPointing was to make a fun new way to discover some of our great products and departments (did you know we sold Housewares and Wedding Dresses?) in a more personalized way.  We would love to hear what you all think and hear any suggestions you have on ways to make it even more useful.

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!
