  • What it will take to create a distribution system that keeps inventory stocked and ready for shipping, the last mile that delivers the package to the consumer, the contacts with customers that smooth the path to purchase or return, the payment and security protocols that give online shoppers the confidence to buy from your brand; these all have an enormous impact on shoppers- experience with your online store and a big influence on whether they’ll return.
