Small and local

It is striking, for example, that a whopping 93 percent of online customers enjoy shopping at small and local retailers. Perhaps because 61 percenter finds unique products that are not available anywhere else. An encouragement for the small entrepreneur.

Appearance website

Small or large, the design of the website is essential for all sellers. je website is your shop window. According to 93 percent of customers, appearance is even the deciding factor whether they buy something or not. In fact, 52 percent of customers don't come back because they don't like the look.

Shopping cart

Fully loaded shopping carts are unfortunately no guarantee in e-commerce that the customer will also make a purchase. More than half of all online shoppers do not complete the checkout process. In many cases because, for example, extra unexpected costs were presented, or because the customer finds better prices elsewhere. So work on the shop (car)!
