The Importance Of Same Day Delivery For Your Business

According to a 2014 McKinsey report, same day delivery will be the next step in the evolution of parcel logistics. More than half of merchants now offer same day delivery, proving that the report was accurate. Online shops who do not keep up run the risk of going out of business because it is a continuing trend that cannot be ignored.

To give you an idea of the significance of this idea for merchants, the following is a summary of four reasons to consider same day delivery for your business: 

More sellers are now offering same day delivery

More than 51% of online retailers now provide same day delivery. The remaining 49% of online retailers intend to launch the service within the next five years as well. Retailers operating on a large scale in densely populated cities are moving especially quickly to offer same day delivery in order to meet the needs of their customers and steal traffic from sellers who do not offer same day deliveries. 

Delivery timeframe heavily influences buyers’ decisions

Before making a purchase, approximately 65% of customers want to know the estimated delivery time. Furthermore, 25% of shoppers rank delivery timeframe as one of the most important factors when ranking an online store, and 30% of millennials will only buy from retailers that guarantee same day delivery.

Notably, 50% of shoppers say they are more likely to shop online if same day delivery is guaranteed. Customers want this delivery feature for two reasons: urgency/convenience and cost. 

Shoppers are surprisingly willing to pay even more for same day delivery

Same day delivery boosts productivity and can boost an online seller’s competitive advantage by up to 85%. As a result, Invespcro reports that companies that offer same day delivery can double their conversion rates and see significant year-over-year sales increases. Furthermore, shoppers’ growing preference for same day delivery means that businesses that fail to meet these expectations will see a drop in conversions and sales. 

Same day delivery is very easy to set up

More than half of online retailers admit to having difficulty managing shipping logistics. Furthermore, approximately 40% of retailers are concerned about same day delivery shipping costs. 

Fortunately, this is changing as delivery services are now becoming more affordable and accessible, especially in Nigeria.
