2022 ANZ State of eCommerce Report Out Now

BigCommerce released its latest ANZ State of Ecommerce Report, so local eCommerce entrepreneurs can get insight into consumer shopping behaviours that help them better meet customer expectations, improve online shopping experiences and stay ahead of competitors.

“The beginning of the pandemic pushed shoppers online, and now they’re getting more selective with their spending to prioritize saving more. We’re at a point where retailers and merchants need to take an introspective look at their key services to address shopper pain points like website speed and fast delivery times.”

Shannon Ingrey, vice president & general manager, APAC at BigCommerce
The new report, which surveyed over 5,690 Australian and New Zealand shoppers, reveals debit cards have risen in popularity, while the use of Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) providers has remained consistent.

Some shoppers have indicated plans to decrease their future BNPL usage to save more for essentials, while other shoppers continue to prioritize website speed and fast delivery times in their online shopping experience.
