Productsup aims to radically rethink the commerce space

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered unprecedented growth in retail and e-commerce globally. This sudden spike in e-commerce businesses across regions can be attributed to consumers shifting to online shopping. As per a report by Emarketer, worldwide retail e-commerce sales have clocked $5 trillion this year and will exceed $7 trillion by the end of 2025. Despite this growing preference toward the online world, brick-and-mortar shopping is still gaining huge traction. A 2020 report published by eMarketer observed that e-commerce holds a 14.5% share of the overall retail sales in the U.S. This signifies that over 80% of the remaining sales happen through offline channels.

Customers prefer to do online research on e-commerce sites before purchasing at a store. This has given rise to companies like Productsup, which looks toward tapping into omnichannel commerce to take advantage of consumers' newly found hybrid shopping behavior.
