Infographic: Is Free Shipping Essential?
By Dane Carlson on May 8, 2013 in News
Free shipping was once a something that could set your online retail business apart, has it become cost of doing business? The infographic below from Monetate points out that:
- Nearly half of all online orders now include free shipping
- Shoppers spend more when shipping costs are waived
I know I discriminate against retail websites that don’t offer free shipping far greater than the actual price of shipping necessitates. Do you?
