Competition in global B2C E-Commerce delivery intensifies, yStats.com reports
A new publication by Germany-based B2C E-Commerce and Online Payment market intelligence firm yStats.com
reveals the most important trends and numbers in B2C E-Commerce delivery. One of the findings of the report, titled “Global
B2C E-Commerce Delivery 2015”, is that competition among online retailers for faster delivery has intensified, while online
shoppers still value free delivery over same day delivery offerings.
The global growth of B2C E-Commerce creates both challenges and opportunities for the delivery sector. According to the
findings of secondary market research specialist yStats.com, free shipping still remains the number one priority for almost two
thirds of online shoppers worldwide. In Asia, for example, around half of digital buyers would add items to a cart in order to qualify
for the free shipping service and in North America more than half of all online shoppers would choose longer delivery times, as of
On the other hand, delivery speed is also a major concern of global online shoppers. Especially in the emerging markets,
online consumers have to cope with long delivery times, as online retailers struggle with underdeveloped logistics. Approximately
two thirds of online shoppers worldwide found delivery speed to be important last year. The BRIC countries rank the highest in share
of online shoppers who would pay more for faster delivery. In response to this demand, online retailers attempt to offer express
delivery options, such as same day and next day delivery. This leads to increased investment and intensified competition among
the merchants and logistics providers, as yStats.com’s report shows. In China, the two largest E-Commerce companies, Alibaba and
JD.com compete in covering the largest number of cities with same day delivery. Meanwhile, US-based Amazon.com expanded its one-
hour delivery service to London in summer 2015, with further cities in the UK and perhaps in Europe to be covered later this year.
Another interesting finding of yStats.com’s report is that while home delivery is still the leading B2C E-Commerce delivery
option in many countries, the popularity of alternative delivery methods, such as “click and collect”, is growing. In Sweden, close to
half of online shoppers preferred to pick up their online orders from the post office or another location, rather than have these orders
delivered to their home, as of early 2015. Another example is Argentina, where “pick up at the point of sale” was the second leading
delivery method used by online shoppers last year.
