Why Online Shopping Is A Nightmare For Retailers

Why Online Shopping Is A Nightmare For Retailers

Every major retailer is investing heavily in e-commerce and many are closing physical stores as more and more consumers shop online.

It might sound like a money-saving move to shift more business online.

But due to shipping and packaging costs, as well as higher rates of returns, some retailers end up losing money online – xosts can run as high as 25% of sales for retailers that outsource their e-commerce operations.

The Psychology Of Free Samples

People love free, people love food, and thus, people love free food. Retailers, too, have their own reasons to love sampling, from the financial (samples have boosted sales in some cases by as much as 2,000 percent) to the behavioral (they can sway people to habitually buy things that they never used to purchase). It’s true that free samples help consumers learn more about products, and that they make retail environments more appealing. But samples are operating on a more subconscious level as well. “Reciprocity is a very, very strong instinct,” says Dan Ariely, a behavioral economist at Duke University. “If somebody does something for you”—such as giving you a quarter of a ravioli on a piece of wax paper—“you really feel a rather surprisingly strong obligation to do something back for them.” Source: The Psychology Behind Costco's Free Samples - The Atlantic Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

How Start-Ups are Changing the Future of Retailers

There is a wave a foot in the start-up community with companies developing products that will make it easier for consumers to find the best price for an item. Consumers will even be able to check out where the product is available locally for the best price – all from just standing in front of a retail shelf and looking up the item on their mobile device. This creates a huge problem for retailers. It’s as if every store on the planet is located in the palm of a consumer’s hand.

The World Cup of eCommerce: Are You Playing?

The World Cup is a global goliath, with the capacity to unite nations and their people around a common cause – soccer (or futbol, depending on where you’re reading this!) There are very few events with the ability to reach an audience of this size, all of which are attentive and engaged due to the love of the game. With such an exorbitant level of engagement from the fans themselves, the World Cup also presents a profound opportunity for eCommerce retailers to capitalize on the excitement and camaraderie of the competition through online sales.
