While asked what problems people experience when buying online, six out of ten millennial and Gen Z customers had some apprehensions. They said, “I don’t know if the furniture will fit through the door” and “I don’t know if the products will come looking as expected, or if they’ll just be a big disappointment.”

E-commerce sellers are all too familiar with the challenge of winning trust. With conversion rates consistently hovering around 10% — and even lower for mobile purchasing — the challenge is as ancient as e-commerce itself.
