AMSTERDAM, NL and GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct. 17, 2019 – Pointer Brand Protection is excited to announce its new partnership with Market America | SHOP.COM, to help prevent unauthorized online sales.
Market America | SHOP.COM is a global product brokerage and internet marketing company that specializes in one-to-one marketing. Through the company’s shopping website, SHOP.COM, consumers have access to over 60 million products, including Market America exclusive brands and thousands of top retail brands. Additionally, the company’s independent distributors, called UnFranchise® Owners, are provided a SHOP.COM website, unique to them, along with products and services and marketing materials. Through its renowned business model, the Shopping Annuity®, UnFranchise Owners leverage all of these tools to create a lucrative business and financial security for themselves.
To maintain fairness in pricing and consistency, as well as product quality for the multitude of Market America–exclusive product lines, sales of Isotonix®, Motives® cosmetics, TLS® and a wealth of other exclusive product lines are restricted, solely, to Market America | SHOP.COM–approved channels. When any Market America–exclusive products appear on external platforms, these are a breach of the user agreement.
In addition to the efforts of Market America’s Field Compliance team, as specialists in monitoring e-commerce websites for counterfeits and other forms of brand infringement, Pointer will protect the livelihoods and individual businesses of the many thousands of UnFranchise Owners by removing infringing listings for Market America | SHOP.COM brands and products.
