The customer experience is essential for customers to choose your products over the competition and, during Black Friday, it is especially important, the speed of response, because if we delay in resolving any problems or doubts, the offers may be finalized.

Growth of eCommerce sales

eCommerce has grown in importance in society in recent years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced people to resort to this method of purchasing to be able to buy certain products during confinement.

For this reason, many of the businesses that used to have physical stores have started to sell their products online, causing an expansion of eCommerce, based on the needs of consumers.

Variety and payment flexibility

In recent years, customer experience, as mentioned above, has become increasingly important. eCommerce seeks to retain customers by improving their experience during the purchase process, which involves from the first step to the last step of this process.

Of course, there are different ways to improve the eCommerce user experience, but for this Black Friday, in addition to customer service, we highlight the one related to the product payment process.

For users to positively value the payment process, it is essential to highlight the security and ease when paying for a product, but, in addition, during Black Friday, we must offer our customers the possibility of paying through different methods so that they can find their preferred method and do not decide to leave our website. For example, one of the payment methods that has been recently added is Bizum, as it is a safer and easier method to use on mobile devices.

On the other hand, being an event in which users buy more expensive products, waiting for this occasion to enjoy better deals on higher priced products, we can offer an installment or flexible payment, thus achieving a great competitive advantage over our competition and, being at the height of large surfaces that offer such possibilities as a claim.

Trend towards sustainability

Consumers attach increasing importance to commitment to the environment, so sustainable products will be positively valued during this event.

Sustainability is a war that has been fought for years in the world of commerce, but it is true that it has been gaining more weight this 2022, when the commitment of eCommerce to avoid plastics and use more recycled materials, especially for packaging, has been joined by the search for more sustainable transportation, such as electric vehicles.

There are also different business models that promote sustainability and environmental commitment that will be present during this event, such as the sale of second-hand or reconditioned products.

If your eCommerce is committed to the planet, it is important that your consumers know it, since it will be a positive factor for them to purchase your products over those of your competitors.
