Bulky items: How to increase your sales?
According a recent Salecycle article, two thirds of online buyers abandon cart during checkout.
Several reasons explain this high number: additional costs were added, there are not enough payment methods… or delivery costs are too high.
High delivery costs are actually reason number 1 for cart abandonment. More than 50% of online sales for bulky items do not happen because of these high delivery costs.
Bulky items: a booming market driven by ecommerce
Despite these challenges, the bulky item delivery is booming mainly driven by ecommerce and marketplaces rise. It is estimated to represent €1B just in France and €5.5B in Europe growing at 6% YoY rate.
COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the digitalisation of Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs). They are now selling more than 50% of their products online. Providing an efficient and affordable service has become a key challenge for these SMBs who do not have internal resources to manage this service. Clients are also more sensitive to environmental issues and want to favour companies who provide eco-friendly solutions.
Even though traditional players (Post Office, Fedex, UPS…) enable to ship small packages, there are no solutions to ship these bulky items who are too heavy or too big.
On this booming market where traditional players are struggling to innovate, disruptive solutions have emerged.
