Do you visit a mall as often as you did 10 or 15 years ago? Yeah, I didn’t think so. You have contributed to the decline in stores visits to the tune of 5% per month for the last two years. You buy anything online recently? Yeah, I thought so. You have catalyzed US Ecommerce sales, which experienced double digit growth in 2014. But would you buy more if checkout was made easier? Well, maybe. But trends I see point to “No.” I will take us through an interactive discussion to explore why optimizing checkout is less important than optimizing customer experiences.
