SA grocery shoppers ripe for the picking across array of digital channels

South Africa’s burgeoning connected commerce era means that consumers are no longer shopping entirely online or offline but rather taking a blended approach, using whatever channel best suits their needs.

This is one of the key findings of the just released Nielsen Future of Grocery Report based on a survey that polled 30 000 online respondents in 60 countries to understand how digital technology will shape the retail landscape of the future.

Nielsen Africa Retailer Services and E-Commerce MD Harsh Sarda says, “Despite varying levels of network infrastructure, access challenges and modern trade development for markets in Africa, overall Internet penetration is on the increase and the most successful modern and traditional trade retailers and manufacturers will be those at the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds, leveraging technology to satisfy shoppers how, when and where they want to shop.”

“A key aspect of meeting these needs is in-store digital enablement options that bring the ease, convenience, and personalisation of online to brick-and-mortar stores. Instituting digital strategies into the in-store experience is therefore not just a nice-to-have for key consumer markets -these options can increase dwell time, engagement levels, basket-size and shopper satisfaction,” he adds.
