What are sales and discounting looking like this year? Is there an increase or drop in metrics such as average basket volume, traffic, or conversion rate? How does it compare to 2021?

In IMRG’s weekly analysis, we’re in conversation with them to see what lies ahead for Black Friday — what demand might look like and how customer expectations have changed ahead of peak. Will the trend of shopping and campaigns going early continue, or will this year change that?

Some key takeways:

  • How will the cost of living crisis impact customer expectations for Black Friday?
  • What does traffic and demand look like for Black Friday 2022?
  • Has demand dropped ahead of the big event, and how are retailers coping?

We answer the big questions:

  • What’s changed about selling to the EU since 1st January 2020?

  • What are the Top 5 IOSS myths that we need to bust?

  • In plain speak – What is IOSS and how does it help you save time, money, and improve the customer experience?

  • What does the IOSS journey look like? A step-by-step walk-through with real-life examples, starting from IOSS registration and subsequent selling, shipping, and VAT reporting.

  • What are the common pitfalls to look out for?
