Consumers want free shipping on online orders, but shipping isn’t free for retailers. That’s forced retailers to come up with innovative strategies that meet customers’ expectations without compromising profits. That could be offering free shipping at certain times or to certain customers, requiring a minimum order or including free shipping as a perk in a loyalty or credit card program. And some avoid the cost of shipping by encouraging shoppers to pick up orders in stores, which often lead to additional sales. In this data-driven webinar you’ll get the details of which retailers are adopting each strategy and how it’s working for them. Speakers will also report on exclusive survey data that reveals how consumers view the various shipping options retailers offer.
