Multichannel retail is undoubtedly the future of ecommerce. In today's world, customers expect to purchase your products on any platform they like, on any device they like, from anywhere in the world. There are endless benefits to selling on your own, branded ecommerce store. But if you're not also listing your products on the world's largest marketplaces as well, you're missing a huge opportunity. In fact, research published by Bloomberg revealed that more than 50% of shoppers start their product search on Amazon. Can you really afford to not be listing on there? Not only that, but Veeqo insights show that retailers selling on their own website and at least two marketplaces enjoy, on average, THREE TIMES as many sales as retailers just selling on just a single channel. In our latest infographic, we explore the importance of multichannel selling for retailers who are serious about increasing their sales in 2017.
