2017 Holiday “will be the Season of Same-Day Delivery”

2017 Holiday “will be the Season of Same-Day Delivery”

A new survey from Austin-based Dropoff has indicated that a majority (60%) of US holiday shoppers are more likely to purchase gifts from retailers that offer same-day delivery.

Dropoff added that the number goes up for the 67% of consumers who plan to do last minute holiday shopping this year. Of those, 90% said they are more likely to purchase from retailers offering same-day delivery.

Furthermore, 90% of respondents stated that receiving purchases on-time is even more important when those purchases are gifts, and 89% said that after purchasing a holiday gift and having it delivered same-day, they are ‘extremely likely’ to recommend that retailer to others.

“The holiday shopping season is a pivotal time for retailers, with tremendous opportunity to earn consumers’ loyalty,” said Sean Spector, CEO of Dropoff.
