KupiVIP becomes partner for eBay Enterprise omnichannel solutions in Russian eCommerce Market
Investment in Omnichannel technologies represents one of the biggest retail trends for global retailers and brands in 2014.
The online retail environment has a relatively short history in comparison to its brick-and-mortar predecessor.
The growth in omnichannel fulfilment currently being experienced by shoppers and retailers alike is driving some of the biggest disruptions the sector has ever experienced. For retailers, omnichannel fulfilment represents a significant opportunity to drive business efficiencies and competitive advantage. Connecting previously siloed stock inventories across all channels positively impacts sales, operating margins, and shipping costs.
eBay Enterprise is the global leader in omnichannel solutions, enabling store-based fulfilment in more than 6,500 stores for 42 brands, across 3 continents - with over billion in store fulfilment sales supported in the last year.
Research across eBay Enterprise's clients participating in the ship-from-store fulfilment program saw on average a 20% increase in online sales driven as a result of increased stock availability online.
Connecting stock across all available distribution points increases product availability, allowing retailers to reduce out-of-stocks and missed sales opportunities previously created through siloed stock inventories.International expansion and Omnichannel fulfilment programs are vital to leading global retailers and brands.
Ship-from-Store is a popular tool amongst retailers in the US, and growing in popularity in geographically large countries including China, as a means to provide customers with improvements in delivery speed by utilising local stores to reduce the last mile delivery distance.
On a European level, Ship-from-Store not only drives improvements in delivery speed but also facilitates significant reductions in delivery costs across both large geographical territories such as Russia, and also on a cross-border scale.
