Latest eCommerce trends and innovations with Salesforce

In recent years eCommerce has grown exponentially, companies, in order to meet the growing demand have been implementing changes and studying options for improvements that apply both operationally how, finally, in the customer experience.

We know that artificial intelligence has been mentioned a lot, but if we are going to address trends and innovations, AI is the maximum constant for the coming months and years.

In this regard, a Salesforce study reveals that even companies that have not yet implemented AI are poised to do so. According to their figures, 48% of these companies are already experimenting with AI, while only 3% have no interest in doing so.

The following chart shows the status of AI implementation in eCommerce:

Integration of AI in e-commerce systems: (2024).

Salesforce’s eCommerce trends for 2024 continue to point to the personalization and loyalty of customers, through solutions that will optimize the work of all departments of the company, let’s see a little more of this:

1. Headless eCommerce

Traditional eCommerce architecture lacks flexibility and speed of immediate adaptation, and this is where Headless Commerce comes in.

Headless Commerce proposes an architecture in which the front-end, the visual layer of the website or application that users see, is separated from the back-end, i.e. the business infrastructure and data. The two work as two separate and independent layers, which are connected to each other through the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

By adopting this approach, brands can gain greater autonomy and fluidity between design and development, allowing both teams to focus on their area without the dependency on a centralized environment for changes and testing.

Key benefits of Headless Commerce include:

  • Greater design flexibility
  • Scalability
  • Infinite customization
  • Optimized commerce
  • Speed of development.

2. Omni-channel strategy

The omnichannel strategy builds an enhanced and unified customer experience across the brands’ different shopping, marketing, device, service or customer service channels, both online and offline.

Each of the channels is well connected to each other with customer information to facilitate a friendly, seamless and personalized buying or care process, regardless of the changes between one and the other.

A good example might be when a customer receives a notification of a discounted product via email, accesses the online store’s desktop website and adds it to the shopping cart, then decides to go to the nearest physical store to see it in person. Finally, he decides to return to the online store, but now on mobile app, to pay and buy.

Here the customer efficiently used four different channels to complete the purchase (mail, web, physical store and app). As a result, the brand delivered a flexible, personalized and robust customer experience.

3. AI-driven personalization

The adoption of artificial intelligence is a resounding reality in eCommerce, with 97% of retailers currently evaluating, exploring or fully implementing the technology.

A key word behind the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) is personalization. Brands are increasingly accelerating the use of AI to understand customer data in real time to drive engaging, efficient and personalized shopping experiences. Instead of receiving generic, siloed recommendations, customers receive products, offers, content and inquiries based on their preferences and needs.

As a result, this level of personalization for shopping not only has a direct influence on sales, but also builds tangible benefits in terms of customer loyalty and satisfaction.

Some AI innovations powered by Salesforce include:

  • Generative AI assistant “Einstein Copilot for Shoppers”.
  • Page Designer to create, design and personalize stores.
  • Customer and Product Insights for retailers to easily obtain data on trends and products sold.
