E-commerce for International Growth

        • E-commerce has grown exponentially. It's going to keep growing – and fast.

        With all the opportunity comes competition. Retailers (both brick-and-mortar and e-tailers) must         create a user-friendly, differentiated online shopping experience to get more of the growing pie.

        But how? UPS commissioned comScore completed a survey of online shoppers.                                     UPS Pulse of the Online Shopper provides insights that cover pre-purchase, checkout and post-         purchase – and identify ways retailers can increase sales by improving the customer experience.
