Presenting the Indix Consumer Shopping Report
Today, we’re excited to bring you the Indix Consumer Shopping Report. It’s no question that smart devices like mobile phones or Amazon’s Echo have catapulted online shopping into its prime. According to this eMarketer forecast, worldwide ecommerce sales will reach $1.915 trillion this year. Despite this, many businesses are still trying to figure out how they get the right product to the right person at the right time, and through the right channel – to fulfill the omnichannel promise.
To better understand what influences shopping behavior, Indix surveyed 1,000 consumers across the United States. We found that consumers are shopping everywhere, anywhere, and all the time. Commerce is becoming truly pervasive. Yet certain factors, like gender and age greatly influence whether or not a purchase is made.
