Lockdowns, travel bans and store closures have forced the world’s largest retailers to set up online marketplaces to survive – in some cases, they’re selling direct to consumer (DTC) for the first time. But not all e-commerce newcomers had the infrastructure in place to deliver a world-class customer experience, and small retail businesses have finally been able to gain an advantage over bigger brands.
Join this briefing to hear case studies from Shopify’s biggest merchants on the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced during this global pandemic and how they are standing out in a crowded e-commerce space.
