Customer buying and choosing illustration

There’s been a sky-high rise in online shopping since the pandemic. Due to the lockdowns and precautions remarkably, people moved more towards shopping online.

That led to a huge challenge for the order fulfillment industries. And often the challenges are inspired by the practices initially opted by the industry giants like Amazon, which people eventually expect from other retailers too.

One of them includes Same day (or faster delivery which most the people consider as the same or the next day delivery).

It initially was opted by Amazon and other big retailers and eventually hold all other retailers accountable for the same.

Every company strives to make a friendly relationship with its consumers. Offering huge discounts, loyalty programs, and top-notch customer services do help create a company image of being trustworthy and consumer-friendly.

Despite all these techniques same-day delivery or faster delivery may help you level up your business.

As the method is becoming a standard or primary requirement for the consumers, it seems to keep your existing customers satisfied while garnering the new ones.

Because of the growing heights of Amazon Prime, same-day delivery is the first demand for the customers and so, most other companies also have made it available for their customers who prefer getting their orders delivered on the same day or within 24 hours, thereby reducing the time taken making consumers preferring online shopping over going to nearby store or supermarket to fulfill their needs.

Many types of research by professionals state that more people are convinced to buy their goods online because of the same-day delivery.

Consumers believe that same-day delivery is a value-added benefit that makes online shopping a very much preferable way to get your needs fulfilled on time.

 

UNFORESEEN GROWING DEMANDS FOR HOUSEHOLD GOODS ONLINE

There is a noted increase in the shopping for the household goods like groceries, clothing, cleaning items, and electronics online since the pandemic.

And the same-day delivery has always been a key factor resulting in the demands and increase in the shipments worldwide, as the purchases are recurring in an escalating manner due to changing fashion and trends.

 

NEARLY HALF OF THE CONSUMERS ARE WILLING TO WAIT FOR TWO DAYS TO GET THEIR ORDERS DELIVERED VIA FAST DELIVERY

According to the U.S. consumer survey regarding fast shipping of online deliveries, it was noted that half of the total online consumers are willing to wait for around two days to get their orders shipped, while some said to wait about 3 to 4 days.

And many drifted away from the idea of waiting for 2-3 days. This drop highlights the importance and expectations of the consumers from retailers while shopping online.

 

CONSUMERS ARE WILLING TO PAY AN AMOUNT FOR THE SAME DAY DELIVERY AND SOME ARE EVEN READY TO PAY MORE FOR THE DELIVERY WITHIN 3-4 HOURS

The research also shows that many consumers consider paying an extra amount just to get their orders on the same day via faster delivery services.

 

BENEFITS OF THE SAME DAY DELIVERY: -

  1. It provides a higher level of consumer satisfaction.
  2. It contributes to maintaining a trusting and consumer-friendly relationship.
  3. Same-day delivery makes it frictionless for the consumers to make the purchasing decision.
  4. It is helpful for the companies as they get to store fewer daily inventories.
  5. Same-day delivery services help the companies in increasing their margins and also maintain a competitive edge in the market.

 

TO CONCLUDE IT ALL: -

If we talk about delivery options for the order fulfillments or retail functioning, timings do matter.

As the eCommerce industry is sky-rocketing there will come new challenges when delivery goals would be weighed with the consumer expectations.

Although it is to be noted that the challenges bring with them a great number of new opportunities too.

Re-evaluating the shipping practices with the advancement of technology can help in making a long way and encouraging more people in shopping online while ensuring complete consumer satisfaction.
