Customers Now Prefer Shopping Online To In-Store

I have been reading several research reports from both sides of the Atlantic recently that talk about how customers are starting to favour the online shopping experience over the real, in-store experience. How could this be? Haven't retailers always found that some customers prefer to see and touch products before purchasing? Times are changing. then it is clear that the Millennial demographic spends at least half of their entire shopping budget online. The report shows that 67 per cent of Millennials and 56 per cent of Generation X "prefer to search and purchase on e-commerce sites rather than in-store" while 41 per cent of Baby Boomers and 28 per cent of seniors "prefer online to offline shopping." In my opinion the industry analyst community talks too much about demographic differences - especially how the Millennials are changing the world. I believe that customer behaviour is changing across all age groups and to see this report state that even a third of seniors prefer to shop online supports this view.

New in Google PLAs: “Special Offers” filter & an ad that links to a new Shopping page layout

Google is constantly testing and iterating on how it displays product listing ads. The team at CommerceHub spotted two new variations this week. In one, a “with Special Offers” filter option appears in a product card unit. In another, a single product listing ad links to a landing page on Google Shopping that’s formatted like an expanded version of a typical product card unit — that’s what Google calls the product ad format that looks like Knowledge Graph panels). “With Special Offers” On a search result for [amazon fire], a “with Special Offers” option is selected by default. Oddly, the first listing for Best Buy has no offer associated with it. The special offers shown include free shipping, no tax and used – so these are not merchant promotions. Selecting “Item Only” from the drop down removes “with Special Offers” from the product title and a new product image is shown. The two products listings highlight “used” and “no tax”, so it’s unclear to me exactly how these are getting separated. Send me a tweet if you know of have ideas. Google has included feature filters like the 8GB option in the Amazon Fire product card unit, and more elaborately for products like the iPhone; see below.

Ever Notice The Loops On Shopping Carts? Well, This Is Why They Are There!

Sara
Written by Ana Krneta Menial tasks are rarely questioned, they become like second nature to us. And the things we use to complete these tasks are also very rarely questioned. Their function is taken for granted and as long as they do what they are meant to, there is no reason to question the what and how of it. Some examples are lamps, phones, and even scissors. Very rarely does someone question why these things were made to be the way they are. Something else we use a lot and do not think about are shopping carts.

Sara
MONTREAL -- Rising online sales are prompting some Canadian retailers to consider overhauling the commission structures that motivate their store employees to deliver strong customer service. Clothing rtailer Le Chateau said it's reviewing its options due to the growth of showrooming -- a practice where shoppers browse in-store but then order online -- because it deprives employees of commissions. "All of the retailers are trying to find out how to recalibrate," said Franco Rocchi, Le Chateau's senior vice-president sales and operations.
