Retailers Shift to a Unified Commerce Strategy in 2020

Posted by groupfio on November 19th, 2020

Unified commerce is a high-level approach that some retailers have moved to because it delivers an excellent customer experience by offering continuity across both digital and physical channels. Unified commerce can be properly executed when all aspects of the retailer’s business are connected, which includes when customers are browsing for a product or service, e-commerce, inventory management, sales, and fulfillment.

Bad Unified Commerce Strategy: Sarah saw a Facebook carousel ad for several sunglasses. She noticed that the black sunglasses were on sale for 50% off. So, she clicked on the link to purchase the black sunglasses; however, she realized that the shopping cart didn’t have the 50% off discount applied. Sarah didn’t want to pay full price, so she left the retailer’s website and never returned.

Good Unified Commerce Strategy: Davon saw an ad for 25% off on brown boots on his Instagram feed during lunch. He clicked on the link which took him directly to the shopping cart with the 25% off discount applied. The retailer also featured a “Recommended Items” section in the shopping cart that displayed jackets for 10% off. Davon added a jacket to his order and proceeded to check-out and pay. The retailer has now recorded the customer’s buying habits and will use this information to provide similar offers to returning and new customers.
