Online Shoppers Seek In-Store Purchasing Experience for 2016 Holiday Season
Eugene, OR -- October 18, 2016 -- As the holiday shopping season looms, a new study from SheerID has found that today’s consumers want an in-store experience without actually stepping into a store. Conducted in September 2016, the survey of over 500 US shoppers who have made purchases online looked at shoppers’ habits, likes, and dislikes, as well as holiday spending plans for the upcoming holiday season.
With the vast majority planning to spend over $250 on holiday shopping, over 61% of survey respondents noted that they intend to buy 50-100% of their holiday goods without visiting a brick-and-mortar store. However, although shoppers clearly favor ecommerce, the data showed that many have issues with the process, which leads to shopping cart abandonment. Just over 56% of respondents said they would abandon their shopping carts due to expensive shipping, while over 40% said they would abandon their carts as a result of a frustrating check out experience.
