Omni-2000 study reveals the German and Austrian omni-channel retail market is healthy and well-serviced compared to other markets studied globally

OrderDynamics, a Tecsys company, today released the final country-specific Omni-2000 report. Omni-2000 Research: Germany|Austria depicts a balanced market of omni-channel practices in these countries. Collectively, the region is third behind France (50.5%) and the UK (64.0%) in number of retailers offering BOPIS, at 43.0%.

Additionally, Germany and Austria lead in active inventory visibility when compared to all other countries studied in the Omni-2000: Global Research. While less than 37% of retailers in all countries except France provided inventory visibility to customers, 59% of German and Austrian retailers offered basic stock visibility. The number of omni-channel retailers in Germany and Austria offering buy online return in-store (BORIS) also stands out as significantly higher when compared to other countries at 77.9%.

Across 200 retail chains with a minimum of 10 store locations, additional key findings for the German and Austrian retail market include:

  • 11.6% of omni-channel retailers commit to having orders within 24 hours
  • 84.0% of all retailers provide free return deliveries
  • 10.5% of omni-channel retailers have an optimized m-commerce site
  • 9.3% of omni-channel retailers accept Instagram purchases

Customer-friendly returns policies are also common practice among these retailers. While the global average for retailers is 76.9%, 94.9% of retailers studied across Germany and Austria provide online returns policies deemed customer friendly. In accordance with a dominance in returns, the region also leads in free returns shipping. Eighty-four percent of regional retailers surveyed offer free returns shipping. The global average in this area is only 30.4%.

Looking to the future, German and Austrian retailers are tasked with developing social selling capabilities to meet emerging consumer needs. While 85.0% of all retailers in these countries have an Instagram presence, less than 7.0% currently optimize the social media tool as a selling channel.

“German and Austrian retailers are making early headway in offering shoppers omni-channel options such as BOPIS and BORIS,” said Nick McLean, president, OrderDynamics. “It will be interesting to watch as the market continues to evolve and grow.”
