In 2023, Southeast Asia is witnessing a dynamic shift in consumer behavior, driven by various factors that impact how people shop and make purchasing decisions. According to our media partner Parcel Monitor, sustainability has taken center stage in Southeast Asia as more and more consumers are prioritizing environmentally-friendly practices, with a significant focus on sustainable product packaging and ethical supply chain practices. In a similar vein, many consumers in the region are also increasingly inclined to support businesses involved in charitable causes.
Next, the demand for excellent customer service remains high, with a substantial number of Southeast Asian customers indicating they would readily switch to competitors if they encountered poor service. Positive online reviews and ratings play a pivotal role in shaping purchasing decisions, with most consumers relying on them to measure a retailer’s credibility. Additionally, effective product tracking, particularly with timely updates on parcel location and accurate delivery dates, is paramount for enhancing customer satisfaction and trust in the e-commerce sector, where reliability and predictability are highly valued.
