How Amazon is shaping customer expectations on a global scale

Tips and Tricks, Strategy, Amazon

Retail giant Amazon is consistently raising the bar for purchasing products online. As they continue to raise expectations, customers have come to expect the same level of service from every online store. This increase in customer expectations is now known as the “Amazon effect.”

Thanks to Amazon, customers take ordering online for granted. They’ve set a new standard where convenience and consistency is assumed, no matter where customers buy from. Now, online stores will always be compared to the streamlined processes they know and value from Amazon.

Customers demand a fast, personalized and friction-less buying experience, but this of course raises some serious challenges for ecommerce stores wanting to compete.

Let’s explore a few of these expectations and how your business can fight back.
