Shipping – first and last impression of eCommerce
Shipping is the last step in eCommerce and it’s an essential step for all e-commerce stores selling physical items. At the same time, shipping is boring and expensive. This talk will look at shipping from a customer conversion, customer satisfaction and retention angle. We will look at how shipping affects the customer from the moment they start browsing on your eCommerce store to the moment the postman delivers the package at the end (customer’s doorstep) and also introduce some best practices that are easy to implement for every eCommerce store.
