For just the second quarter of 2020, e-commerce totaled $211.5 billion in the U.S. When customers buy online with a mobile device or through a computer, their products arrive in a box. With the market growing so fast, having the right, attractive e-commerce boxes for your products can help you stand out.
Quality e-commerce boxes can:
When customers buy a product at a brick-and-mortar store, businesses can use lighting, face-to-face customer service, colors, displays and even scents to create an amazing experience. With e-commerce, your packaging replaces that experience. Online ordering and packaging are the two key moments you have to create an amazing experience so you can build brand loyalty.
Gorgeous, customized boxes for your e-commerce business help your brand in many ways:
Custom Boxes Now! has worked with many e-commerce providers in different industries, and we have seen the power of attractive boxes in action. Jet, an e-commerce store founded by Marc Lore, used custom printed boxes to set the store apart from other e-commerce giants. Jet boxes feature the company’s logo and colors, and Jet posts stories about the boxes on social media. For example, when customers use the boxes as dollhouses, Jet posts this online.
M.Gemi is another e-commerce business with a deep understanding of the power of custom boxes. M.Gemi works with small leather companies in Italy to create luxury Italian shoes at a lower price than the $2,000 big Italian brands often charge. However, M.Gemi still wants to offer a luxury unboxing experience to customers worldwide. This is why they ship their shoes in custom e-commerce boxes.
Inside the boxes, the shoes are placed in a branded canvas bag with a handwritten card, written directly to the customer. The unboxing experience is meant to mimic the luxury shopping experience, and customers have reacted favorably, with many unveiling their unboxing experience on social media platforms.
If you have an online business and need to ship products, your boxes can help you stand out in a sea of deliveries. Your custom boxes can contain technical information about your products, marketing and branding messages, special offers and reorder information. With e-commerce boxes and today’s printing technology, your imagination is the only limit.
