Making Shipping--and Selling--Easier in the E-marketplace

Building an E-commerce Solution for Anderson SeafoodsImpressive year-over-year growth in online sales shows customers are craving--and finding--a more convenient way to shop. Convenience runs both ways, though, and the swing toward e-commerce means more businesses are poised to reach markets they may never have considered with a brick-and-mortar store.

The UPS comScore study finds that the customer experience post-purchase--specifically shipping and delivery --is one your biggest opportunities to make a positive impression.
