Checkout abandonment rates stand at an average of 67.4%.
This eye opening statistic reveals that a significant amount of online businesses are letting valuable sales slip through their fingers due to errors within the checkout stage itself. The modern day consumer is spoiled by choice, they can easily compare prices, they judge a website and brand within seconds and they will make quick judgments on whether to make a purchase or not with any slight site error or cause for doubt leading to a loss of interest, and lost sales.
Online brands must work increasingly harder to encourage their consumers to make a purchase. Brands must understand how their consumers respond to their website design and layout as well as offering top customer service, quality products and competitive prices – not an easy challenge.
Vouchercloud has developed this infographic to help online businesses gain an understanding of what puts consumers off from making a purchase – leading to checkout abandonment. It gives an insight into the mind of the ever demanding online consumer in a bid to help businesses improve their sales.

[pullquote]Now more than ever, a quality video can often do a better job at getting clicks to your site and getting sales than any other form of marketing.[/pullquote] The reasoning is simple: people are less likely to be distracted while watching and listening to a video, compared to text, where there’s no need to pause for fear of missing something, one can just tab over to respond to a message and never tab back.
If you want to keep a customer’s attention and turn idle curiosity into hard sales, social video is the platform to use to get it done. Whether you brave the masses of YouTube or take this advice to the extreme and market your business through Vine, get acquainted with the major social video channels with our graphic below by 1800numbernow.com.

We have all done it.
We have a purchase in mind. We drive to the store, any store, and focus all of our attention on completing this mission successfully.
We wander aimlessly around crowded aisles and end caps stuffed with closeouts and uncategorized “junk”. Giving up the scavenger hunt, we now look for a customer service attendant to help us out.
We wait. We continue to wait until we catch the eye of a reluctant employee. We ask for help and low and behold, they are out of stock.
What do we do now? We order it on Amazon.
You still might be asking yourself, if only 10% of purchases are made online, how is it that Amazon is kicking Walmart’s butt?

  • Selection
  • Price
  • Availability
  • Highest Customer Service Ratings

  • 2/3 of Amazon visitors are return visitors.
  • Amazon can tell an email was unsuccessful as soon as it goes out.
  • Amazon changes their pricing 2 million times per day – no one can compete with that.
