With the coronavirus impacting consumer buying behavior, eCommerce has managed to replace brick and mortar stores as thousands of people are quarantined to their homed around the world.
Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, retailers were fulfilling online customer orders in hours. However, now, it takes days even if the items are available to order.
So how are retailers adjusting to this change? What should each customer expect from this situation?
In North America alone, the online orders for retailers were up by 52% last month. Revenue for retailers who had web-stores is up by 30% this year over last year. Data provided by Adobe Analytics shows that in-store pickups from online orders, including curbside pickups, have increased by 87% from February of this year to March 29, 2020.
Curbside pickup is now a popular side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the current situation, many retailers have been forced to provide curbside pickups. They have also embedded curbside pickup features in their webstores which has helped in providing crowd control in order to protect both employees and customers from infection.
Now consumers can even place their orders online from the safety of their cars and without risking infection. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Once the order is made, the store employee can retrieve the product and deliver it right to your vehicle without any delays!
