Although 53% of people in the UK are doing some or all their grocery shopping online, there’s a massive gap between what consumers want, and what retailers are offering, according to new research.
About 45% of consumers have ever shopped for groceries online, and 60% of those say they have rarely done so, according to a new survey from RichRelevance.
The survey found that the biggest barrier to shopping online is that shoppers don’t trust others to pick the best or freshest items, a factor cited by 53.7% of respondents who have not shopped online. Another 44.3% said they don’t want to pay for delivery.
Personalization presents a set of unique challenges for B2B companies, particularly because B2B customers tend to ‘procure’ rather than ‘shop’ for goods.
A recent news item just placed Amazon.com Inc.’s revenue above the gross domestic products of oil-rich Algeria and Qatar. And Amazon’s footprint is set to grow even larger as the largest U.S. online retailer makes a big push into B2B commerce. In addition to its “Back to Business” campaign, Amazon just announced its own delivery service for businesses that seeks to undercut UPS and FedEx on price.
