Covid19 has transformed habits. Online shopping has skyrocketed, and traditional retail has taken the backlash. Now, starting online business is strategic to be successful. The main issues retailers have to face concern inventory management and shipments. The solution is print-on-demand (POD).
Inventory management, unused stocks, organization of shipments and the ability to adapt to trends. These are the four main challenges facing both online and offline sellers.
On the one hand, you need enough stocks to face sales surges. On the other hand, you must avoid unused stocks. If you’re wrong here, the risks are unhappy customers and waste of money.
Bad inventory management also affects shipments. 34% of companies shipped an order late because it was sold when not available. In addition, you have to take charge of shipments. This involves a much more complex internal organization.
Resilience: an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change. The secret to surviving in a competitive market is to quickly adapt your business to new trends.
Personalization remains one of eCommerce’s most popular trends. It’s not hard to see why. After all, in an age where anyone can buy pretty much anything online, why shouldn’t consumers be able to purchase *exactly* what they want – something totally unique to themselves, their tastes, and identity?
Back in the pre-Internet days, if shoppers wanted something bespoke, they either customized their items at home or took them to a commercial printer/designer – which often came with a hefty price tag.
However, thing look different now thanks to the outbreak of eCommerce and Print-On-Demand services.
