Reimagining Commerce: Principles of Standout Digital Shopping Experiences

Digital commerce is reaching critical mass in 2019. While there has always been a natural uptick in how often people shop online, consumers’ digital habits have started to stabilize. Twenty-six percent of online consumers currently shop online at least weekly, according to a survey of more than 4,500 global online shoppers. This is just a small increase from last year’s Reimagining Commerce report, which found that 23 percent of online consumers shop online at this frequency. This report provides an in-depth look at trends, tactics and technologies guiding brands and retailers in the age of experience-driven commerce.
