South Africa’s eCommerce Market to Reach $3.5 Billion in 2020, says Researchers | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

eCommerce has broken barriers as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic’s lockdown restrictions. Statista believes that the South African market will reach just over R62 billion this year, and show a compounded annual growth rate of 10% for the next four years. User penetration will be 37% this year and is expected to hit almost 51% by 2024.
And even given the devasting impact of the national lockdown restrictions, which meant that online shoppers could order only “essential” items, 22% of a thousand South African adults surveyed in late April by Ipsos said they were using online shopping more frequently than in the month before, with 65% shopping less at a supermarket according to Nielsen figures released in early May.
eCommerce and Consumer Trust
“We’re seeing more and more people realise that online shopping can be trusted, and is a safe and efficient way to address issues of health, safety and affordability,” says Craig Lubbe, CEO for Bidorbuy.
“E-commerce’s rise, especially now, reinforces the point that consumer trust and legitimacy of online retailers are paramount, especially in an era of heightened risk and uncertainty.”

Emphasising the role of trust as a major issue in people’s lives, the 2020 Edelman Trust Barometer – an online survey of more than 13 000 respondents in 11 countries around the world – reported a significant increase in trust among consumers in April in 10 of the 11 countries. Trust is at “the heart of” ensuring an online shopper returns over and over again, notes Lubbe.
Almost two-thirds (65%) of those surveyed believed business CEOs should take the lead in addressing the challenges of the pandemic, with 60% believing that CEOs of global businesses should use the power and resources of their companies to first help the people of the country in which they’re headquartered.
“What this says is that we in business/e-commerce have a moral obligation; it’s a moment of reckoning for us,” says Lubbe.
eCommerce and Security
Security and privacy for consumers shopping online are, of course, non-negotiable, with credit-card fraud a “massive concern” for South African users, says Michael Richards, owner and director of SiteMeUp Marketing.
America’s Federal Trade Commission, which enforces anti-monopoly laws and promotes consumer protection in that country, reported in its Consumer Sentinel Network databook in February last year that identity theft was among the three most common categories of fraud complaints it received, and that credit-card fraud was the most prevalent in this category, with more than 167 000 people reporting usage of their information to obtain credit without their permission.
Richards says, “Secure payment gateways such as DPO PayGate have increased their security features to a PCI DSS compliance basis, which is an international standard.” PCI DSS, or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, is a standard for organisations that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes.
Another factor that determines the legitimacy of a site from a user’s point of view – that reassures them that the site is lawful, credible and of an acceptable standard – is its overall look and feel, its level of professionalism and modernity, how quickly it loads, how efficient its links are, and if it offers a welcoming and enjoyable experience.
“Aside from quick and easy navigation, there should be excellent product categorisation, a strong focus on customer reviews, and consistent communication around order progress,” says Richards. “This includes online tracking, SMS notifications on order status, and multiple payment-method options which should be seamless and secure.”
eCommerce and Shopping for Deals
Evaluating price is a grey area that many shoppers simply misjudge, Lubbe believes. “What we’re finding, especially as disposable income lessens, is that shoppers tend to shop around more for better deals,” he says.
Shoppers tend to look at similar items on different sites, as well as assessing the displayed “per cent off” sign compared to the original price. But some sites may inflate the retail price to make it seem that a deal is better than it actually is, Lubbe warns.
While Black Friday in November is normally the biggest shopping occasion, Lubbe advises buyers to look out for other special promotion days, too, such as public holidays or Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Richards agrees, saying that typically Thursday mornings and Mondays are when upcoming promotional specials are communicated.
eCommerce and Shipping
Shipping costs can add significantly to the overall purchase price, and Lubbe advises people to always check whether free shipping is included or not. Shipping and returns policies should be easy to find on the site, and very clearly communicated, adds Lubbe. “And check to see if the site offers a buyer cover or buyer protection programme.”
From a delivery perspective, customers who receive their goods in unexpectedly eco-friendly and/or creative packaging often consider this the final touch needed to make it a memorable experience, says Richards.
As much as South Africa’s leading online retailers are active on social media, so too are their followers, who will make public and voice their opinion on how efficient – or inefficient – an e-tailer is in dealing with their queries.
“Value can mean different things for different people, but ultimately it’s about the customer’s journey,” says Richards.
From the moment they see a social media post suggesting they click through to a site, to when they get an update on their order progress, efficient and consistent customer service will lead to repeat business from a loyal customer, and in the process, a degree of invaluable trust is built between the service provider and the shopper.
“As a proudly South African business, and a pioneer in local online retail, we remain committed to educating shoppers on the incredible benefits a good, value-driven online buying experience can offer,” says Lubbe. “Expect the eCommerce space to evolve and innovate in ways and means you thought were never possible – it can only get better.”

eCommerce Surges by 139% Amidst Pandemic, Research Shows | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Sourced from Innovation Village.

South Africa’s eCommerce industry is booming retailers were forced to take their operations online due to lockdown and safety restrictions. Now, with lockdown restrictions easing, the temptation is to throttle back on online efforts and go back to the ways of old.
That would be a big mistake, believes Warrick Kernes, founder of the Insaka eCommerce Academy. “Businesses really need to embrace this and make it part of their strategy.”
At this time, more South Africans are delving into online buying for everything from groceries and toiletries to hardware and digital devices. But it’s when you drill down into the statistics that the true uptake becomes apparent.
Just recently payment gateway PayFast released information regarding transactions during the January to June 2020 period. The data shows a 139% surge in eCommerce activity among 18-24-year-olds, a 55% hike in the 25-34 year bracket and an impressive 62% increase among those aged 55-64, when compared with 2019 figures.

Quite simply, says PayFast MD Jonathan Smit, “COVID-19 has accelerated industry growth”.
Encouragingly, these consumer habits are likely to persist long after COVID-19 has subsided. This should be a wake-up call for businesses that still do not fully recognise the long-term strategic value of harnessing their eCommerce potential.
“A lot of people have had a wake-up call, but now that lockdown levels are going down they are very promptly returning to the comfort of the old normal. But we shouldn’t ignore the lessons of COVID-19. This is the way of the future, so embrace it fully and make this part of your business,” says Kernes.
Growing interest in online retail
While Kernes asserts that eCommerce remains the “easiest and least risky way to start your own business”, he stresses that the sudden rush of people signing up to buy online is putting heavy pressure on service providers. “A lot of support services, such as couriers and payment gateways and software suppliers, are battling to keep up with the demand,” he explains.
Kernes’ advice to service providers at this time is to focus heavily on the customer service experience: “With many service providers currently battling to keep up with demand, some customers are being left high and dry. I always believe that managing customer expectations is key.”
While he urges consumers to be sensitive to the pressures inherent in the current market amidst this rapid shift in buying habits, Kernes believes providers that are capable of delivering great service will be rewarded with repeat business.

4 Ways to Boost Your eCommerce Business | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Sourced from IOL.

South Africa’s eCommerce industry is booming as a result of retailers who were constrained from operating normally due to lockdown and safety restrictions.
Now, with lockdown restrictions easing, the temptation is to throttle back on online efforts and go back to the ways of old. That would be a big mistake, believes Warrick Kernes, founder of the Insaka eCommerce Academy.
“Previously the challenge with building an online store was creating a website and taking payments online or delivering a parcel overnight. Today, these challenges are largely solved, but now a new challenge has emerged due to the mass of sellers coming online,” says Kernes.

Here are four ways to make your eCommerce business stand out online:

Do the basics right. Work hard to create trust by offering great customer service and delivering fast.
Market across all platforms. “There isn’t one social media platform which is going to turn your business around, there isn’t a secret switch to make orders pour through your site,” says Kernes. Instead, he suggests testing a variety of marketing channels and approaches.
Keep learning and growing. Building a slick online store is just the beginning, to truly succeed you need to continually invest your time in learning how to develop a sustainable online business.
Pick your partners with care. Find and partner with companies that support your customer service drive.

eCommerce Activity Reaches Record High – Offering Hope for Local Economy | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Sourced from IOL.

eCommerce is said to be providing a ray of hope for South Africa’s local economy with transactions hitting a record high in May and June. And, while there will be some levelling off, DPO South Africa says the new love affair with digital commerce is unlikely to fade in coming months, offering some relief in an otherwise grim economy.
“The last weekend in May saw transactions per minute hit four times that of the busiest minute experienced during Black Friday last year. June was similar to May and we expect our monthly volumes for the rest of the year to settle at around 40 per cent higher than last year,” explains Peter Harvey, MD of DPO South Africa.
According to Harvey, the adoption of eCommerce should be seen as a very positive sign after the depressing financial metrics published over the past weeks.
The BankservAfrica Economic Transaction Index (BETI), calculated by Economists.co.za, which measures transactions between South Africa’s banks, has recently experienced its sharpest decline in history. The three months ending 31 May saw transactional value drop by 20% compared to the same period in 2019.

“Although the latest bank transactions numbers paint a grim picture, we believe the eCommerce transactional numbers prove that South Africans are still spending online and, with some innovative thinking, there is certainly room for optimism for local entrepreneurs,” says Harvey.
Harvey acknowledges the COVID-19 lockdown has catapulted digital commerce forward by at least five years, but also says it is part of a greater retail revolution which has been happening for some time.
“Years back all the focus was placed on the formal retail sector. However, we have seen a marked shift. Our partners in the broader payment space have confirmed that the informal sector, including our spaza shops and informal vendors, are fast approaching the same monthly revenues as the formal sector. And, while digital retail currently only accounts for a small percentage of the formal sector’s monthly trade, both the informal and digital sectors are the solid areas of growth opportunity which should be appealing to the savvy entrepreneur,” Harvey adds.
Historically, one of the biggest obstacles to transacting online for many consumers was the trust aspect of eCommerce.
“We think the launch of 3D Secure 2.0 will make a big difference. It offers a much better user experience coupled with a more secure authentication process, both of which will enhance the shopping experience. We also need the full support of all our issuing banks. Most are very happy to promote digital commerce when they issue debit or credit cards, but some, like Capitec, still make their customers jump through too many hoops before they are able to transact online. We hope this will change soon.”
Harvey believes the stellar performance of South African online businesses this year, as well as the signs that there is still room for growth, could offer the country an economic lifeline.
“The past three months have shown us that local consumers are ready to embrace digital business. This increased demand for digital offerings must now be met with a good supply. We have every confidence that the innovative and entrepreneurial flair of South Africans will shine through in the months to come.”

Pizzas in the post: Shopify challenges Amazon for slice of lockdown trade | E-commerce – Blog – 10 minute

When the lockdown forced the Pizza Pilgrims chain to close, the company came up with an unusual solution to stay in business.
The company, with restaurants in London and Oxford and run by brothers Thom and James Elliot – who started out selling Neapolitan pizza from the back of a converted Piaggio Ape van – hit on the novel idea of posting pizza kits to customers.
The first 50 of the £15 frying pan pizza kits, which promise to make a pair of “banging” margheritas, sold out in 20 seconds. The company is now packing up to 700 a day and considering opening up a second of its 13 restaurants to satisfy the demand.
Pizza Pilgrims pivoted online almost overnight via Shopify, the Canadian e-commerce platform that sells the digital kit that companies need to build and run a website.
The Ottawa-based firm is challenging Amazon’s dominance by offering brands of all sizes an alternative route online. For a monthly subscription, its software allows companies to manage their stock, payments and logistics under their own domain and brand.
Shopify now has 1m companies on its books, ranging from small UK outfits such as Pizza Pilgrims to celebrities including Kylie Jenner and Kanye West, who use its tech to sell their respective makeup and clothing lines. Shoppers spent nearly £50bn on the platform last year.
The world has tilted towards the internet during the pandemic and there is a growing sense that the shutdown may be permanently changing consumer behaviour. Working from home has been normalised for millions of people, while pensioners have become converts to online grocery shopping.
The closure of big parts of the retail and hospitality trade has forced companies to find new ways to make sales. In the six weeks to 24 April, there was a 70% increase in the number of UK companies opening websites compared with the preceding six weeks, says Shopify.
Pizza Pilgrims had never considered selling online before, Thom says, but was forced to become inventive as the economy collapsed. The “most surreal moment of his life” happened last week when he was invited to join a business brainstorming session with No 10, only to find himself on a Zoom call with Boris Johnson.
Investors are banking on the evolving business model being good news for Shopify, with its share price more than doubling since the start of April. The surge has made it Canada’s most valuable company, worth $86.2bn (£69.4bn) after nosing ahead of the Royal Bank of Canada.

Shopify’s rocketing value has turned the spotlight on its German-born boss, Tobias Lütke, 39, who describes himself on Twitter as “CEO by day, Dad in the evening, hacker at night”.
An avid video gamer, he openly takes days off work to indulge his passion, broadcasting his Fortnite and Starcraft campaigns on the Twitch streaming platform.
Lütke has blogged about his decision to quit school at 16 and become an apprentice computer programmer for Siemens in his home town of Koblenz.
“School was not for me,” he wrote. “To me, computers were so much more interesting. They diagnosed me with all sorts of learning disabilities and started to medicate me. I wanted to leave it all behind. My degree is not recognised in North America so I am technically a high school dropout.”
Lütke met his Canadian wife while snowboarding in Whistler and eventually moved to Canada to be with her, starting the Snowdevil website, selling high-end snowboards, with the entrepreneur Scott Lake. The pair soon realised the software Lütke was writing for the site was actually more valuable, and Shopify was born.

Shopify has made Lütke one of Canada’s wealthiest people, with a $7.1bn fortune, according to Forbes. However, the father-of-three reportedly shuns the workaholism that often comes with business success: “I’m home at 5.30pm every evening. I play video games alone, with my friends and increasingly with my kids. My job is incredible but it is also just a job,” he said on Twitter.
He recently announced Shopify’s offices would not reopen until 2021 with remote working set to become a permanent arrangement for most of its 5,000 staff. “Office centricity is over,” he tweeted.
Shopify’s plans for the future include parking its tanks on Amazon’s lawn by building a warehouse and logistics network so that it can also handle shipping on behalf of its sellers.

Facebook Unveils Shops – its New eCommerce Feature | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Facebook has launched its latest eCommerce feature – Shops – which will enable businesses to set up an online store for customers to access across Facebook and Instagram. The company says that it is investing in features that inspire people to shop and make buying and selling online easier.
This comes at a time when many businesses are struggling to keep their doors open due to the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on social and economic activity. One way that they’re able to survive is by taking their stock online – something that Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg says they’re seeing a lot more.
“If you can’t physically open your store or restaurant, you can still take orders online and ship them to people,” he says. “We’re seeing a lot of small businesses that never had online businesses get online for the first time.”
Facebook Shops is designed to make it easy for businesses to set up a single online store for customers to access. Creating a Facebook Shop is free and simple. Businesses can choose the products they want to feature from their catalogue and then customize the look and feel of their shop with a cover image and accent colours that showcase their brand.

This means any seller, no matter their size or budget, can bring their business online and connect with customers wherever and whenever it’s convenient for them.
People can find Facebook Shops on a business’ Facebook Page or Instagram profile, or discover them through stories or ads. From there, they can browse the full collection, save products they’re interested in and place an order either on the business’ website or without leaving the app if the business has enabled checkout.
And just like being in a physical store and needing to ask someone for help, in Facebook Shops people will be able to message a business through WhatsApp, Messenger or Instagram Direct to ask questions, get support, track deliveries and more.
Facebook says that it will begin rolling out Shops in the US today and it will be more widely available in the coming months.

Ecommerce companies likely to resume full services from today- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Read Article
E-commerce companies are likely to resume full services across most parts of the country from today under the fourth phase of the lockdown that allows greater relaxations, although industry watchers say they are waiting for states’ decision on the matter. According to the latest Union Home Ministry’s order, “all other activities will be permitted, except those which are specifically prohibited” under the fourth phase of the lockdown that ends on May 31.
However, in containment zones, only essential activities will be allowed. States and union territories – based on their assessment of the situation – may prohibit certain other activities in various zones or impose such restrictions as deemed necessary, the order added.
Emails sent to Flipkart and Amazon India did not elicit a response.
Srinivas Mothey, Senior Vice President of Paytm Mall, said the move will help the company deliver to most of the metro cities which were in the red zones.
“We thank the government for taking the decision for allowing the delivery of non-essentials in red zones across the country. This move will help us deliver to most of the metro cities which presently fall in the red zones,” he said, adding that the company has received a sizeable number of consumer electronics wishlist orders from metro cities.
“…people have been waiting to buy laptops, mobile phones, as well as other daily use items for the last several weeks now. The government’s decision will also help in opening up supplies of consumer electronics from warehouses which are in the red zones,” Mothey said.
He added that the company has already had discussions with its merchant and logistics partners, and will start taking orders and delivering from Monday itself.
“We are ensuring that all state and central guidelines are followed to operate in the red zones. In the coming week, we hope for more relaxations in the interstate movement of non-essential goods so that e-commerce activity scales up,” he added.
An industry executive, who did not wish to be named, said companies are waiting for more clarity from states before taking a final call on resumption of services in various locations.
A Snapdeal spokesperson said the MHA guidelines pave the way for a broader resumption of economic activities across most parts of India.
“E-commerce has played a crucial role in the last two months by delivering a range of much-needed goods to consumers – within the safety of their homes. Our sellers and delivery partners have worked extensively to meet these requirements while exercising strict safety measures and we applaud their commitment in rising to the occasion,” the spokesperson said.
He said the company is “ready and equipped” to now start serving customers all across India – in red, green, and orange zones – and added that the development will enable lakhs of medium and small online sellers to start rebuilding their businesses.
In the first two phases of the lockdown (that started from March 25), e-commerce companies were allowed to sell only essential items like grocery, healthcare, and pharmaceutical products.
In the third phase (from May 4), these platforms were allowed to sell all items in orange and green zones, but only essential items were allowed to be shipped in red zones that include top e-commerce hubs like Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, and Hyderabad.
Sales of non-essential items on e-commerce platforms in the first week of May were lower than last year on account of the lockdown, but orders were scaling fast as people bought apparel, smartphones, and grooming products among other items.
The industry continues to face the challenge of availability of limited manpower for warehouses and delivery.
Similarly, cab-hailing services like Ola and Uber may also resume services across locations.
The MHA order said inter-state movement of passenger vehicles and buses with mutual consent of the states and union territories involved.
It added that intra-state movement of passenger vehicles and buses, as decided by the states and union territories.
These activities will be permitted with restrictions, except in the containment zones. Also, standard operating procedures (SOPs) for movement of people will continue to operate.
Ola and Uber did not respond to emailed queries.

P&G and Shopee’s ‘Show Me My Home’ aims to make e-commerce more natural- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Procter & Gamble and Shopee have come together to scale-up the FMCG giant’s ‘Show Me My Home’ concept with the aim of making digital transactions more tangible for shoppers.
An idea originally masterminded for the physical store experience, ‘Show Me My Home’ has been taken online via Shopee’s e-commerce platform. The website takes shoppers through a P&G product shopping experience, categorizing products by rooms of the house.
Kim Dong Hyun, regional director, e-commerce for APAC Middle East and Africa at P&G says the concept originated from insights into the way people think and act when they are shopping.
“This campaign is designed to help consumers by making a digital platform more realistic. Our setup of different rooms creates an experience that enables shoppers to find what they need faster and easier. These rooms act as more natural categories that trigger remembering forgotten items and encourage a better shopping experience,” he says.
“For example, when a shopper browses the laundry aisle, they may pick up detergent and proceed to think about getting a fabric enhancer because of a natural association made within the laundry category. Facilitating these category adjacencies or associations makes the shopping experience more natural. We use this strategy in brick-and-mortar stores. We wanted to execute this strategy on an e-commerce platform,” adds Kim.
Shopee has built the P&G shop onto its platform specifically for P&G, but says that this more experiential approach to e-commerce is a trend it was already investing in, noting its Shopee Live and Shopee Feed functionalities.
Ian Ho, regional managing director at Shopee, says: “Even before the Covid-19 situation, we have observed that people want to do more than just shop online. Users are demanding greater engagement and social interaction while they shop on the platform. In light of the recent lockdowns in some of our markets, we have also observed an accelerated demand for greater engagement and social interaction on our platform.”
For P&G, speed-to-market is always a concern, with or without lockdown, but these innovations meet a customer need.
“The e-commerce industry continues to evolve quickly, especially while people are on lockdown. At P&G, we are continually trying new ways to personalize and engage our consumers online. Through Show Me My Home campaign, we entertain them with games, live stream and a live feed from Shopee. We also provide educational content to make it a more engaging experience. This trend came from our consumers’ evolving habits and practices. Everything we do starts and ends with our consumers. We understand their needs and wants so that we can continually evolve what she sees and how she shops. When we are in touch with our consumers, we build trust and strengthen our relationship,” adds Kim.
The merging of entertainment and commerce is something that e-commerce brands in Asia Pacific are leading the charge on. Driven by trends originally identified in China, major brands such as Alibaba, JD.com, Lazada, Shopee, Pomelo and Zalora are all using technology such as live streams to fuse entertainment with transactions.
Shopee’s Ho says: “We foresee that this trend is here to stay as more online shoppers see e-commerce platforms not as a purely transactional experience but as a source of entertainment.
“Therefore, our focus in 2020 is to continue to make online shopping more engaging and social. We will continue to innovate our collection of in-app games to bring users more fun and entertainment as well as foster deeper social interaction on Shopee Feed. Similarly, we will also continue to work closely with leading brands such as P&G who share the same vision to innovate the online shopping experience for all,” he adds.
The partnership aspect of this is key as many brands that are seeking to innovate may not be in a position to build projects like this, and scale quickly, without the help of e-commerce platforms. As many businesses look to quickly shift experiences and services online, partnerships like this could become more commonplace.

Coles lures new e-commerce chief from Walmart – Finance – Cloud – Networking – Software- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Coles Group has snapped-up one of Walmart’s most senior and seasoned executives to become its new head of e-commerce, just as the retail giant pivots its online operations to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the uncertain retail environment in the recovery.
Ben Hassing, a 16 year Walmart lifer, will start as Coles’ new chief executive of e-commerce this month, a new executive level position that reports directly to into Coles Group chief executive Steve Cain.
The appointment comes as the wider Australian grocery and supermarket sector pivots to recast operations to adapt to a post pandemic world where shoppers are now flocking to online ordering to stay safe rather than shopping at stores because of social distancing requirements.
Both Coles and rival Woolworths initially struggled to cope with scaling up their online businesses, not because of issues taking and processing transactions but due to a shortage of goods, delivery drivers and vehicles, and disrupted supply chains.
The huge surges in consumer demand forced the shuttering of online ordering until panic buying abated, an occurrence certain to have prompted a review of digital and logistical resilience as supermarket shelves emptied as soon as they were filled.
While it is understood Hassing’s recruitment was put in play before the COVID-19 outbreak, the timing of the announcement is fortuitous as both Coles and Woolworths recalibrate online operations.
“E-commerce has a very important role to play in our purpose of sustainably feeding all Australians to help them lead healthier, happier lives and we’re looking forward to the considerable experience that Ben will bring to our business and to the leadership team,” Coles Group chief executive Steven Cain told iTnews.
It’s fair to say Hassing has pretty well done a full tour of Walmart, having started out as an MBA intern and worked his way up from a buyer through to a range of regional operational and technology leadership roles.
Hassing also spearheaded Walmart’s push into China, holding senior vice president roles for e-commerce and technology for that region before taking heading up Walmart’s cross border trade function while at the same time steering Walmart’s international e-commerce group.
