Internet shopping is more popular in the UK than in any other country. Consumer eCommerce now accounts for 30% of the total retail market in the UK (up from 20% in 2020), with ecommerce annual revenue totaling over £100 billion.

In the dynamic world of e-commerce, businesses are constantly seeking innovative ways to improve customer satisfaction and enhance the overall shopping experience. One such trend that is gaining significant popularity among B2C (Business-to-Consumer) suppliers is the utilisation of customised, letterbox-friendly packaging formats. Many companies are using printed packaging

Enhance convenience.

The rise of online shopping has revolutionised the way consumers make purchases. However, the inconvenience of missed deliveries and the need to collect packages from post offices or courier facilities remains a persistent challenge. During the pandemic, online shopping was made easy as most households had someone at home at all times, since then the number of missed deliveries has increased dramatically. By packaging their products in customised, letterbox-friendly packaging solutions, B2C suppliers can overcome this hurdle. Being compact and appropriately sized, these products are designed to fit through standard letterboxes, ensuring hassle-free delivery directly to the customer’s doorstep. This convenient packaging choice significantly reduces the chances of missed deliveries and the associated frustrations.

Marketing space.

What do most companies wish they could do more of? Get their marketing messages to their target audience. Using the space given on the packaging surface can allow for end-user interaction, increasing customer retention and the sale of additional products to an already captive audience.  

Brand identity and unboxing experience.

In a highly competitive market, building a recognisable brand identity is vital for success. Customised, packaging provides an opportunity for B2C suppliers to stand out from the competition. By incorporating their brand logo, colours and unique designs onto these packaging solutions, suppliers can create a memorable unboxing experience for customers. This thoughtful attention to detail leaves a lasting impression, increasing brand recognition and customer loyalty. Additionally, aesthetically pleasing packaging enhances the overall customer experience, leading to positive reviews and word-of-mouth referrals.

Sustainable materials.

The global awareness of environmental sustainability is rapidly growing. Customers are becoming increasingly mindful of the environmental impact of their purchases. These packages can be made from eco-friendly materials, such as recyclable or biodegradable options. By utilising sustainable packaging practices, suppliers can demonstrate their commitment to reducing waste and promoting a greener future. This eco-conscious approach resonates with environmentally conscious consumers, making their product or service more appealing to a wider customer base.

The growing popularity of printed, letterbox-friendly packaging among B2C suppliers is driven by their ability to enhance convenience, reduce shipping costs, create a distinct brand identity, promote sustainability and offer versatility in product packaging. By embracing these packaging solutions, suppliers can optimise the customer experience, build brand loyalty, and contribute to a more sustainable future.
