Ecommerce has taken over the internet with more and more options available such as bitcoins and mobile pay systems. There are many trends that have become popular in 2020 that have brought this industry to another level of technological advancement and customer appreciation. These are trends that businesses should follow to be sure they are at the top of the market. 
 

1. Greater Personalization

One of the greatest ways to get customers to make a purchase is to make the process personalized. The online store should reflect the customer's interests and personalities. This reflection can be completed by ensuring that data is used based on customer's previous search history, purchase history and brand interests. 

When an experience is personalized to the customer, he or she is more likely to make a purchase. If the personalization benefits the customer, he or she will be more likely to provide the personal information necessary. You could even take it one step further and make promotional material personalized based on the customer's purchase history. 


2. Create Customer Assistance Programs

Another way to personalize the shopping experience for customers is to utilize personal assistants such as artificial intelligence and chatbots. These assistants can answer customer questions or can assist in the shopping experience. 

The more that is asked of these assistants by a customer, the more they will personalize towards the customer's needs. There are many programs available online that will let you create an assistant that will fit your business' and your customer's personalized needs for free or at little cost to you.
 

3. Utilize Visualization

Offering a visualization experience is the way to a customer's heart. People are more drawn to visual information. When providing an interactive visual experience for a product, customers will feel more comfortable purchasing the product. 

Customers could be able to see how durable and nice a product is through an interactive visualization. Virtual reality and 3D imaging can be utilized to bring an in-store experience to the internet. You can allow the customer to zoom in on the product, rotate the product, see different colors of the product and manipulate the product before purchasing to make them more likely to purchase.
