Toronto, Ontario -- Shopistry, a leading commerce solutions company, today announced the launch of Shopistry Showcase, enabling filmmakers, studios, and distributors to launch direct to consumer online sites with the ability to stream content, sell merchandise, and directly engage audiences in one beautiful experience.

As streaming giants Netflix, Disney, Apple, Amazon, and Paramount provide the opportunity for mass audience reach, filmmakers and studios are at risk of diminishing control over distribution, marketing, and revenue opportunities. Shopistry Showcase changes this dynamic with a direct-to-consumer channel for audience monetization that compliments existing licensing deals and provides growth capabilities not provided by the major platforms.

“Being able to go direct to audiences and drive distribution, and monetize content from pre-release, post-release, and long tail with full control is a gamechanger. Fans can watch, shop, and share; it’s like Netflix meets Amazon and everyone wins,” said Matt Osterman Writer/Director (Bitcon, 400 Days, Hover, Ghost from the Machine).

Academy Award winning NEON's innovative online experience is an example of how studios and creators can excite audiences with a beautiful online site including digital streaming, the ability to sell merchandise, gated content, and more. Hosted on Shopistry’s innovative content and commerce platform and integrated with leading providers the solution is built for scale and designed to adapt as consumer behavior continues to evolve.

“By making it easy to launch a direct-to-consumer site, filmmakers, comedians, and all creators can bring their amazing work to audiences that love them and drive new revenue similar to how digital brands have done,” said Jaafer Haidar, CEO of Shopistry. “Showcase is the first integrated solution to elegantly bring commerce and content together. Louis CK and recently Andrew Schultz showed us that going direct to fans has a big payoff. We’ve made it easy for everyone”.

Key benefits include:

  • Streaming & Distribution: Monetize content with secure DRM and flexibility
  • End-to-End Merchandising & Logistics: Sell products and take advantage of Shopistry’s product sourcing, management, and fulfillment
  • Demand Generation: Drive discovery and traffic including social sharing
  • Pre-launch to Long Tail Revenue: Gain across the content lifecycle pre and post release windows and long-tail
  • Full-Service Partner: Managed and built for scale, no tech knowledge required
