MyMalls has always had a front row seat to people’s shopping habits and we can attest that online shopping has grown exponentially in 2020. More and more studies show that people are currently shopping online for things they would normally buy in-store. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic may sure have caused some of the increase, the surge in online retail is here to stay. At MyMalls we are of the belief that you will have much to look forward to in 2021; as more retailers find themselves having to adapt to the new consumer demands every day.
Therefore, we have compiled a list of top trends to watch out for in the new year and hot new must-have products!
Here's a list of things you can expect to see at online shops in 2021 for sure!
Apart from credit cards, many e-commerce businesses already accept digital wallets like Google Pay, Samsung or Apple Pay and PayPal. As some of you have experienced, making payments with an international billing address can be hassle. So, with more online retailers accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment method, we expect more members to benefit from this shift.
Team MyMalls believes that by the end of 2021, most online sales are expected to take place on a mobile device. We know some of you already make your online purchases on your phones or tablets. Online sellers will keep focusing on improving the customer experience for mobile users in order to create a safe online shopping experience.
Artificial intelligence (AI) acts as your online in-store assistant by offering personalized guidance and recommendations to you! AI will improve your shopping experience by analyzing your past purchase history and browsing behavior to show you products you are more likely to buy. More stores will be using technologies to offer customers a rich buying experience. Augmented reality (AR) lets you, the customer, see how a product would look on you before making your final purchase. Imagine not having to physically try on or inspect those articles of clothing you’ve kept hostage in your shopping cart.
Lastly, with the way people shopped in 2020, businesses are putting more of a focus on omnichannel shopping or multichannel shopping. Why is this exciting you may wonder? Imagine interacting with your online store across multiple channels seamlessly. This powerful marketing tool is essentially about creating and maintaining a presence on several channels and social media platforms in order to create a uniformed experience.
As you are well aware, our team is always on the lookout for cool gadgets and the newest trends. Curious what 2021 has in store for you?
