The Middle East’s retail sector is rapidly changing as consumers become more conscious of quality and value while also expecting the convenience of e-commerce. It is critical to build your e-commerce platform to capitalize on changing retail trends and dynamics. As the UAE maintains its market leadership in the Middle East, your multi-channel e-commerce platform should be designed and marketed distinctively.
Covid-19 dealt a significant blow to the economies of many countries around the world. At the same time, Dubai was one of the few cities that resisted the pandemic. There is no doubt that e-commerce websites provide numerous advantages to customers. Shopping online gives them access to a vast array of products and stores, allows them to save time, shop for the best price, and eliminates the need to deal with driving, parking, fighting crowds, and other hassles.
Here are seven tips to benefit from Expo for your E-commerce website:
- On-demand point-of-sale: Your point-of-sale system should enable customers to interact with your e-commerce platform, browse and test products, and make purchases at their leisure. Provide personalized services to customers, such as a saved wish-list and an order history that allows them to easily compare and reorder products.
- Increased customer reach: An online store puts your products or services in the hands of customers on their phone or tablet, no matter where they are in the world. When someone needs something from your store, all they have to do is pull out their smartphone or tablet, browse through your inventory, and click to buy. Your online store will provide you with a new channel to reach an even larger audience of potential customers.
- Measurement, reporting, and taking advantage of opportunities: With an online store, you have access to a wealth of information about your customers: what they buy, what they don’t buy, what they look at, and so on. You can diversify your most successful products and expand them into a broader range of offerings.
- Integrated artificial intelligence (AI): With artificial intelligence taking over key retail sector roles, you can use AI tools to gather, study, and personalize the shopping experience from start to finish. Integrate AI to create an efficient way of analyzing consumers’ browsing and shopping habits, which can then be used to identify and resolve any issues that are causing customers to abandon their carts.
- Less time intensive: After you’ve set up your e-commerce website, you shouldn’t have to spend much time maintaining it. This is because the entire ordering and payment process for customers will be activated through the online system.
- Higher margins & better cash flow: If your company is involved in and sells in the trade industry sector, an e-commerce website will allow you to sell at a higher profit margin. This will increase the profits you make on your products. The shopping cart and payment options on these websites also imply that you will receive full payment from the customer right away. This will improve your cash flow, especially if your customers typically pay you in installments.
- Affordable advertising and marketing: Sellers do not need to spend a lot of money on advertising their products. There are several inexpensive and quick ways to market online in the world of eCommerce. Sellers can show off their products on eCommerce marketplaces because they are visual channels.
