Female consumers gravitate toward peer-to-peer shopping networks
Implications - As women gain more purchasing power, brands have begun tapping into ways to make them feel heard and recognized. Even so, peer-to-peer networks remain an attractive option for women, who wish to feel empowered and autonomous in all of their shopping experiences. As a result, many emerging P2P shopping platforms have been specifically geared towards women, suggesting that, in order to compete, retailers must ensure positive, communal experiences not only for women, but amongst women.
