OrderDynamics Finds Only 27.5% of U.S. Retailers Offer Buy Online Pickup In-Store (BOPIS)

The research highlights the omnichannel capabilities of more than 750 retailers

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2018 (BUSINESS WIRE)–OrderDynamics, providers of the world’s most advanced, out-of-the-box Distributed Order Management (DOM) System, today released its Omni-2000 Research: U.S. Of the countries analyzed in Omni-2000 Research: Global, the U.S. market was found to rank last in click & collect (BOPIS) capabilities.

Though it’s the largest consumer market in the world, U.S. omnichannel is still in its early days, evidenced by larger chains advancing at a disproportionately faster rate than mid-market chains. Nearly half of the retailers surveyed with over 250 stores offer click & collect, whereas only 18.1% with 51-100 stores offer the service.

Additional findings from the 753 U.S.-based retailers include:

39.1% of omnichannel retailers offer basic, active inventory visibility
24.7% of all retailers provide free return shipping
42.1% of U.S. retailers offer BORIS (Buy Online Return In-Store)
31.9% of omnichannel retailers accept Instagram purchases
Although room for improvement exists, the research found that 85.8% of retailers surveyed have an e-commerce presence and compared to findings from last year, click & collect grew 5.7%.

“E-commerce is deployed well throughout the U.S. retail market, but this research shows omnichannel capabilities continue to mature,” said Nick McLean, CEO, OrderDynamics. “As retailers start to take advantage of faster, standardized and much less expensive point solutions, this profile will shift.”
