When the ominous Covid-19 started to make headlines around the world, retailers were among the casualties that suffered substantial losses. While the migration to the e-commerce sphere is a smart and timely move, there’s still one factor to consider, which is the customers’ delivery experience.
So, what exactly is the experience really all about?
The Shift in Customer’s Purchase Journey
When the pandemic hits, the government had to roll out the movement control order (MCO) to counteract the rapidly-climbing Covid-19 cases. This causes the shift in purchasing trend from over the counter to clicks on mobile devices is fueled by the restrictions of mass movement and gatherings that came with the MCO. As a result?
With consumers suddenly finding themselves on the waiting end instead of receiving their goods instantaneously, the race for faster delivery has become a contention point for businesses. And why not? 38% of customers say they’ll never buy from an online seller again following a negative delivery experience.
Which brings us to the million-dollar question: how do you get on the faster delivery bandwagon for your business?
Offer Positive Delivery Experience
In order to deliver a positive delivery experience, the process has to be fast and user friendly. After a customer place an order, a delivery should be arranged for the item right away. However, if you are dealing with many orders, it’s not easy to arrange for all of the delivery without delay. The solution? Have the delivery management automated.
