Smart retailers understand these rising customer demands, and therefore increasingly put the customer first – not the product – in order to build loyalty. Even one unsatisfactory experience can end an otherwise fruitful customer relationship. A recent study from BigCommerce indicates that some relationships end before they even get started. The study found 77% of online buyers abandon their purchase if the shipping cost and services are deemed unsatisfactory, and 87% will choose a retailer specifically because free shipping is offered.
