Creating an Online Retail Store
In the current climate, it’s even more important to offer your customers a safe, contactless way to continue doing business with you.
Over the past decade, customers have been changing their spending and shopping habits with a strong, growing preference for online transactions, so the COVID-19 pandemic and the worldwide adoption of social distancing has only strengthened the argument to take your business online.
By 2021, roughly 93 percent of UK internet users are expected to shop online, according to the Office of National Statistics. These figures are from before the pandemic and updated statistics are expected soon, however we can only expect this number to rise.
If more than 93% of customers are shopping online and you don’t have an online store, you are only selling to less than 7% of your target market. It’s time to widen your reach.
