New Nielsen Ecommerce Research Report Available

Nielsen has just released its consumer study on “Global Connected Commerce”. Some of the headline conclusions include:

  • Consumers are both “showrooming” (browsing in store & buying low price online) and also “webrooming” (researching online & buying in stores);
  • Cross-border ecommerce is increasing rapidly, 57% of respondents had bought from a foreign emerchant in the past 6 months;
  • In developed countries most payments are by credit card (53%) or by digital payment systems (43%). Cash on delivery (CoD) is most popular in developing countries;
  • Given the increasing complexity of omni-retail, engagement of the consumer is the skill retailers must master.

Details of this extremely interesting  study are available from Nielsen South Africa.
