This Wikimedia Shop article is
referring to a site which seems
not to be, or include, a wiki.
However, it still refers to
the subject of wikis.
Wikimedia Shop, also known as the Wikipedia Store, is not a wiki site – although its page layout mimics other wiki sites. It is an online website shop for the merchandising of various unique Wikimedia Foundation-"branded apparel and other promotional items". Its primary URL is Store.Wikimedia.org (previously at Shop.Wikimedia.org) — and this service is supported by two partner orgainizations, namely Social Imprints, LLC (which provides higher-paying professional jobs to at-risk adults including ex-offenders and recovering drug addicts [1]), and Shopify Inc. (a specialist online e-commerce organization). This current outlet is replacing the older CafePress shop.

The range of items available includes calendars, key-rings, pens, sticker packs, pin badges; as well as larger functional items such as bags and backpacks, stainless-steel water bottles; and the seemingly obligatory clothing range which includes T-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, and sports jackets.

The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization[2] responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wiki sites, grouped together and known as 'project'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Wikimedia Foundations' major wiki projects started with Wikipedia (encyclopedia), and subsequently expanded to include Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary- and secondary-source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these 'projects' have separate wiki site versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media and text files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Wikimedia Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being launched as a new separate wiki site. The Foundations' most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a member of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). Furthermore, the Wikimedia Foundation is a United States 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, granted April 2005, and headquartered at 1 Montgomery Street, Suite 1600, San Francisco County, State of California 94104, United States of America.[3]
