This was headed by Josh Simon, Netflix’s consumers products division executive. Netflix Shop was the latest action done by the company after continuous effort to penetrate the e-commerce industry. It started with collaborations made with Walmart, Sephora, Amazon and Target to sell products and goods related to its series and films.
