CONVENIENCE

Less than ten years ago, it seemed inconceivable that consumers would buy a couch, bananas, or shoes sight unseen. Yet today, consumers motivated by convenience are purchasing these items online in droves. E-commerce companies are not just competing on faster delivery promises; they are also adopting solutions from at-home try-ons to augmented reality to enhanced mobile purchasing in order to drive profound convenience for the customer.
