Online retail: study showing the importance of good product information

Akeneo recently released a survey about the behavior of online buyers regarding product information.

More than 3 500 consumers from 7 countries have been surveyed for this study.

The first learning of that study is that product information quality is considered poor most of the time: only 1 out of 4 customers think it is very good.

The second learning is that when product information is not complete enough or poor quality, more than 70% of customers will purchase another product or the same product on a different channel. Also more than 80% of them have already abandoned a purchase for the same reasons.

The third learning is that more than half of customers have already returned a purchased product because the product information was incorrect.

Last but not least, more than half of customers are ready to pay more for better product information.
