Swap Commerce

Offering discounts for product exchanges, brands push for continued patronage

Implications - In an age where online shopping is growing even more ubiquitous each quarter, the scramble to encourage continued patronage when competition is virtually endless is intensifying the focus for retailers more than ever. As such, the seemingly retro concept of exchange for a discount is being adopted as a means to fulfill consumer demand for savings and brand requirement to have them return. This business model is also augmenting brands to be more ecologically sustainable as a result, thus broadening consumer perception.
