During this pandemic, curbside pickup has drastically changed and has been the lifeline for numerous businesses. Buyers have also benefited from this option as it is a convenient way to get items the same day while also avoid shipping costs.
According to Shopify.com, 31% of buyers said they used the option for the first time between March - June, while 72% reported that they used curbside pickup more often as compared to the beginning of 2020. With that said, curbside pickup will most likely remain steady through the end of the year due to safety concerns and convenience.
If a significant part of your customer base is already local, or you plan to attract more local customers in the future, consider offering curbside pickup as an option at checkout.
