The retail industry in the US has transformed significantly in the past few years, with physical stores shutting down across the country and more consumers shopping online. There
has been a tremendous change in consumer buying behavior as they now have a wide range of products, brands, and channels to choose from. In a sea of choices, consumers are leveraging technology and are becoming more and more tech-savvy, with increasing usage of mobiles, internet and social media in the shopping process.
The practice of "show rooming," or screening a product in a retail store and then purchasing it online, and "web rooming," or screening a product online and then buying it in a retail store is becoming increasingly common. According to an Accenture survey, around 73% of consumers surveyed, had participated in the practice of "show rooming" at least once in the last six months, while 88% have been "web rooming".
The Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 passed by the US Senate proposes to collect sales tax from online retailers who sell more than $1 million in products annually.
The major focus of the retailer is to create a unified shopping experience for the customer by integrating their online and offline shopping channels.
