Ecommerce will make your life better!?

By Gavin Young

We knew all along of course, but recent results show ecommerce simplifies life and significantly improves quality of life - according to a new study: 'Shopping 4.0', conducted by Deutsche Post DHL.

Of the online shoppers surveyed in Germany, 44% saw improvements in their quality of life. Reasons stated were "online shopping is more fun" (41%), "less stressful" (63%) and "better management of time" (81%).

Of the respondents that had limited access to physical shops and stores, 75% were certain online shopping had a positive impact on quality of life.

Web shopping was also perceived as being an emotional experience. Two-thirds of those surveyed looked forward to their package being delivered. Over 50% of respondents said the experience was akin to "receiving a gift", and that they experience an emotional high when their online purchase is delivered.

The core finding of the study is that e-commerce has become part of mainstream society. Increasing numbers of people of all ages are using this convenient alternative to the stressful obstacle course of physical shopping. Ecommerce is simplifying our professional and our personal lives.
