Amazon.com, Inc.’s Launch in Poland: Providing an Unprecedented Opportunity for Global eCommerce Sellers
On Wednesday, January 27th 2021, Amazon announced that it is planning on officially launching its eCommerce seller platform in the “booming 19 billion dollar market” of one of Central Europe’s countries, Poland – a young, attractive market for the development of eCommerce that has also been showing positively optimistic economic growth since 2019; Poland had an all-time record of 10 billion euros (approximately 12.1 billion U.S. dollars) in online consumer spending throughout the year of 2020 when it comes to main eCommerce product categories, including clothing, consumer electronics, food, furniture, and toys, as well as having increased its eCommerce spending by 25% in comparison to last year. With Poland’s eCommerce sales future looking optimistic, Amazon has decided to take advantage of the market opportunity by launching its website within Poland as Amazon.pl, providing for global e-Commerce sellers an excellent opportunity for market expansion into the Polish market in order to increase their brand identity and customer acquisition so that they could gain a stronger competitive advantage in the global market against their competitors, guaranteeing strong long-term sales success and financial stability.
Central Europe’s Poland: Cultural Characteristics for the Provision of Exceptional Customer Service
For global eCommerce sellers that are looking to expand their brand reach to the Polish market via Amazon, it is important to understand some of the cultural characteristics that influence the provision of exemplary customer service in order to build trust with Polish consumers and likewise influence their loyalty to eCommerce brands. As of 2018, direct e-mail (or via a contact form) happens to be the main form of contact between eCommerce brands and Polish online consumers – up to 70% of all online customers or more – while approximately 50% of all Polish e-Commerce consumers connect with customer service teams via social media channels such as Instagram or Facebook; in addition to this, out of the other communication and telecom channels, phone calls and direct customer service at the point of sale (POS) are also popular options for communicating with eCommerce sellers (from between approximately 40-to-43 percent of all customer contact) with live chat contact with integrated conversational AI being considered as the means of seller-consumer contact for approximately 33 percent of all consumers who contact with brands. In addition to the means of preferred contact between consumers and the brands that they purchase goods and services from, Polish consumers find complete customer service in a rapid manner to be highly important to their overall customer experience (CX), preferring service that offers speedy responses, complete solutions to each pre-sales / post-sales inquiry or issue, and the provision of automatic information regarding the status of orders. Likewise, Polish eCommerce customers value and respect genuine relationships, so it is important for customer service to build valuable relationships by first being diplomatic at the start of a business relationship and then allowing the Poles to gradually open up to each customer service representative. In addition to genuine relationship building, Poles also expect solid company policies that permit a little bit of leeway when it comes to returns and exchanges; they do not like being told that they can’t receive a product replacement – so, in general, going out of the way to help the customer is very highly-esteemed by Polish customers.
