nShift: Poor stress-testing fuels Black-Friday failures
nShift releases new guide on delivering ecommerce success
LONDON, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Failing to stress-test infrastructure is preventing many online and omnichannel retailers from making the most of Black Friday. nShift, the global leader in delivery management, has released a new guide exploring how to deliver Black-Friday success.
Black Friday continues to be popular. Despite speculation that the day would lose its distinctiveness amid a whole season of discounting, last year's big event saw average spend per person rise. This year's bonanza, on 24 November, is set to break new sales records.
The nShift guide discusses how five common mistakes tend to hold businesses back from making the most of Black Friday:
"Today's shoppers expect regular updates on the status of their deliveries. They assume they will be able to view those updates through the social channels that are relevant to them, not the communication methods that are convenient for the retailer. Creating the right customer experience can build loyalty for the long term. But when consumers feel let down by the delivery experience, they will shop around for a better one."
nShift can help online retailers and webshops scale up for the busiest time of the year. Read the full guide, "Delivering Black-Friday success".
