The Blizzard Shop, formerly known as the Battle.net Shop and Pet Store,[1] is an online store that sells many games, in-game items and other items related to Blizzard Entertainment or its game franchises. Most of the Warcraft in-game items can be purchased from the In-Game Store. It was originally part of the Blizzard Store and at the time was a new way for players to obtain in-game pets to join them on their adventures in Azeroth. However, the reactions to this new feature by the European and American communities were mixed, with many players bemoaning the increasing number of pay-to-use features and expressing concern that real advantages in the game might become available for money at some point.[1][2]

As a result of the Americans getting the pets cheaper than the Europeans due to the conversion rate between dollars and euros ($10 per pet against €10 per pet), many Europeans took advantage of the fact that pets from the American pet shop could be purchased for European realms, which led to Blizzard making the pet stores regional.[3]

It's separate from Blizzard Gear which sells physical items and apparel. Following the release of version 1.9.1 of the desktop app, the shop received a significant update to appearance and design.[4] On November 15, 2018, the shop received a new "Wish List" feature.[5]
