To start with, as the name suggests, live shopping is the act of buying and selling live. According to storyforbrands.com, live shopping is “an online sales technique, but also a new way of consuming in today’s world”. Indeed, thanks to live shopping, one can buy goods and services directly from sellers or via influencers. This instantaneous mode of purchase is very targeted.
Live shopping has been around for a long time in China, but has taken on a new dimension with Taobao Live from Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba.
At a distance, live shopping makes it possible to sell immediately, interactively, technologically… It completely reshuffles the cards for sales and purchases. Therefore, there are three main ideas to remember about live shopping:
All the ingredients are there for live shopping to become a recurring form of live events.
This attractive phenomenon has been adopted by all shops. As siecledigital.co.uk points out, live shopping is a “trend that has literally been thrust into the spotlight in 2022. Many platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, Leroy Merlin have embarked on this experience”.
Thus, this consumer trend is of great interest to traditional retail chains and online giants.
According to Lsa-conso.fr, the web giants are betting more and more on this form of online sales. Today, 10 American companies “Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat and Amazon make it possible to broadcast live videos“.
Gradually, each of these platforms is integrating features into their live video tools that allow consumers to buy directly from them. Notably, the Meta groups – Facebook – and Amazon.
Live shopping can be adapted and offers many opportunities.
In France, eBay is launching a new live shopping experience: Live by eBay. Indeed, the famous e-commerce platform now offers live events every month. Live, you can bid on or buy rare items.
Whether you want to buy second-hand accessories, works of art or much more, Live by eBay should become an unmissable interactive event for bargain hunters and art aficionados. Each month there will be a new theme for eBay and Live by eBay users.
On 3 March 2022, for example, the focus was on second-hand watches. You will be able to preview the items on a dedicated page before the event and then make your quotations live.
The main goal of live shopping and live events in general is to offer more accessibility and gamification.
Shoppers need to have a good time, play games and not feel like they’ve spent money.
