According to Newsweek’s description of their methodology, more than 9,500 online shops were assessed using online databases, online directories, price comparison websites, and global data-research firm Statista. Of these, the shops that had the most American visitors were selected for further evaluation. 8,000 American shoppers were surveyed to score the sites against 7 subjective criteria and each site was evaluated by analysts. The results of this survey, research, and analysis were calculated to determine a score out of 10 for each online shop.

“The Miva platform does everything we need it to do and works perfectly without the suffocating cost of maintaining an open-source platform,” said Bill Haynsworth, Owner of San Diego Hardware (, the website that topped the Newsweek Garden & Craft (Spare Parts) category. “Our Miva site has allowed us to scale with ease and focus on what is important to us; selling hinges and hardware and ensuring that our customers have the best possible experience when they shop with us.”

“We would like to congratulate all the sites that have been ranked as a Best Online Shop,” says Rick Wilson, CEO of Miva. “It takes concerted effort, dedication, and ingenuity to stand out in the current ecommerce climate and we are honored to have played a part in the success of so many online businesses.”
