Ecommerce Pull: Most Consumers Now Comfortable Shopping Online

Email teams better brace themselves: they may soon be getting overworked even more than they already are. 

Among consumers, 75.2% now feel they are savvy enough to shop online. And 73% believe they get better deals online and prefer to buy there, according to a study by the online marketplace Temu, conducted by Propeller insights. 

That could mean a significant increase in both promotional and transactional email volume.   

The big driver for 63.9% of consumers is price. Indeed, 78.4% of consumers polled said they compare prices online before purchasing products anywhere. The other big factors are product quality and speed of delivery.  

Of the shoppers polled, 25.7% shopped at online marketplaces versus 20% who patronized retailers’ web sites. And 50.3% of U.S. shoppers opt for websites and 48.7% for apps, whereas consumers in other countries prefer apps.  



Are they worried about security? Hardly, it seems, with 75.2% saying they believe they are savvy enough to ensure a website is safe and trustworthy.  

However, 73.3% said they read customer reviews to determine whether a website is trustworthy.  

The top three product areas are clothing & accessories, household items and consumer electronics. 

The study also found that younger consumers are more likely than older ones to be influenced by social media. Overall, 62.5% of consumers found the Temu marketplace via social.

Whatever the channel, brands need to have their email notifications systems in order. 

Propeller Insights surveyed 1,000 U.S. shoppers in December 2023.

    My go to is Dick's Sporting Goods there pretty fast comes within 2 or 3 days when you order from them. Since that seems to be where I get my team gear from Nike, Under Armour largely Project Rock from The Rock's clothing line have a lot of his stuff. I still like to go to stores and shop for the feel the mall largely.
