Yesshop (stylised as YESSHOP) was a New Zealand shopping channel. The channel was based on the South Korean model of home shopping.

The channel originally launched in New Zealand on free-to-air television and pay television on 4 November 2013.[1] The channel expanded to Australia via pay television provider Foxtel, launching on 29 February 2016,[2] and later on regional free-to-air television via Southern Cross Austereo on 1 August 2016.[3]

Yesshop's owner, Yes Retail, made the decision to cease trading on 29 September 2016 citing lack of funds to pay wages and the company's current losses of approximately 20 million dollars.[4] Employees were terminated the same day.[5]
