Today, we’re excited to announce an expansive partnership with PayPal, which will help transform our entire One Platform into a dynamic destination for both content and commerce. PayPal’s payments platform will help power our brand new One Platform Commerce network with a payment solution that helps audiences shop our stories safely and seamlessly.
We know audiences want to engage with these kinds of content and commerce initiatives. And we see it every single day. Almost every person across the country connects with the NBCUniversal platform and all of those audiences are also consumers. Overwhelmingly, they enjoy these content experiences, and want to engage repeatedly. They’re interested in the products we feature, and they’re making more purchases than the e-commerce industry average.

Simply put, it’s the next era of content and commerce.
UNVEILING ONE PLATFORM COMMERCE @ NBCU
Our new One Platform Commerce partner network currently hosts 60+ retail partners, including Koio, Our Place, Paravel, Pour les Femmes, Sewing Down South
, from Southern Charm’s Craig Conover
. And there’s definitely room for more.
These retailers will now sit alongside all of our NBCUniversal brands. Just last month,
we rolled out One Platform Commerce with Shop Telemundo, connecting 91% of adult Hispanics with the products they love. Now, we’re scaling across the entire NBCUniversal One Platform™ with Bravo, E!, SYFY and more.
Think of it this way: If NBCUniversal Checkout is the commerce engine behind our One Platform, this retail partner network is the fuel, offering all kinds of brands—including those that don’t normally advertise on television—NBCUniversal’s depth and scale. In fact, 94 percent of brands featured in One Platform Commerce have never advertised on television before.
These brands will now have the support of the best creative and talent in the business, many of whom are also entrepreneurs themselves. As One Platform Commerce expands, we’ll continue to open up new avenues for partnership with talent brands—giving fans new ways to connect with the icons and influencers they love.
BRINGING ONE PLATFORM COMMERCE @ NBCU TO LIFE WITH PAYPAL
It’s one thing to build a retail partner network. It’s another to build a simple, seamless, secure shopping experience. That takes partnership—which is why we’re so excited to build One Platform Commerce in collaboration with PayPal, using their innovative technology to supercharge this initiative.
To start, PayPal is helping to ensure that this year’s unusual holiday experience will be an unforgettable one. Consumers will soon be delighted by shoppable gift guides featured online on Bravo, E!, NBC Sports, SYFY WIRE, Telemundo, and TODAY, and ShoppableTV segments during LatinX Now, Un Nuevo Dia, En Casa con Telemundo, SYFY, and E!’s Daily Pop and more.
And every time these viewers shop our stories, or fall in love with a product from one of our retail partners, their purchase will be powered by PayPal’s commerce technology.
With PayPal, we’re able to provide consumers a marketplace with unmatched scale—and a seamless shopping experience that’s secure. Across linear, digital, social, branded, and editorial content in both English and Spanish, audiences can shop more stories than ever before, all with PayPal’s trusted payment solutions—and all just in time for the holiday season.
