CPG e-Commerce and Promotions Study
Shoppers are using a blended model for shopping now more than ever. They’re mixing pick-up, delivery, in-store and online, with over 42% reporting they will continue to use a blend of shopping options over the next 6 months for their grocery and personal care shopping.
Respondents also reported they are seeking convenience in their shopping, which outweighed saving money as a key driver for trying new stores. However, promotions remain incredibly important, with 75% of respondents reporting using some sort of promotion or savings tool weekly.
Additional key findings from the survey:
• More than 70% of respondents reported that availability of coupons and/or discounts is “very important” or “important” to their shopping experience.
• SmartCommerce’s first survey in 2017 showed that only 27% of shoppers were said to have EVER ordered groceries online. Now 25% will do MOST of their grocery shopping online, representing a significant shift.
• Across all income levels and genders, respondents would prefer to seek out coupons, rather than switch brands or buying less.
• Shoppers are trying new products, with 41% trying private-label brands and nearly 39% trying national or local brands.
