According to Nasdaq 95% of purchases will be made online by 2040. So now is the right time for retailers to face ecommerce challenges & find solutions for them. With consumers increasingly relying on online shopping, e-commerce is opening doors of opportunity to many entrepreneurs.
Customer experience or user experience is key to a successful eCommerce website. Shoppers expect a seamless flow of the website, personalisation and an in-store experience.
There are many ways to improve the user experience, starting with a clean and simple website that makes the user feel eased. Call to action buttons help the user to know what to do with measurable results such as adding products to their cart, buy now and check out. Similarly being upfront, clear and transparent about product details, company policies and shipping policies will not only help a shopper but will also help them trust a company.
When it comes to eCommerce, one of the biggest challenges are security breaches. There is a lot of information/data that is involved while dealing with eCommerce and a technical issue with data can cause severe damage to the retailer’s daily operations as well as brand image.

The search doesn’t stop at finding a particular mode of communication, they want the fastest mode of communication – instant replies to their queries.
