Currently there are around 2 billion digital shoppers globally
Digital eCommerce is huge business meaning the opportunities for brands to succeed online are massive.
Consumers can be demanding, but also loyal; the online experience they receive from brands is therefore crucial. Those businesses that are agile and able to adapt to ever-changing trends and evolving customer expectations and demands will succeed.
Choosing the best eCommerce platform is essential as the basis of business success.
The changing eCommerce landscape
Brands need to step up to engage with users in the way that they expect. That means the use of smart personalisation engines to react to customer intent, ensuring products are available from multiple marketplaces, and increasing capabilities to get in front of users online.
Retailers require a solution that scales in line with business growth, that promises access to market-leading tech, anticipates the needs of consumers, simplifies the purchase process and provides a personalised customer experience.
“It’s a huge decision.”
