Opportunity awaits: What U.S. merchants need to know about Canadian online shoppers

< 1 minute read

In search of exclusive products, more variety and attractive pricing, Canadians made nearly 21 million online purchases last year alone – roughly half of which were from U.S.-based e-commerce merchants on brands not available at local retailers.

Based on proprietary Canada Post research, this new whitepaper takes an in-depth look at Canadian purchase behavior and expectations when buying online from U.S. based merchants.

  • Why do Canadians shop online from south of the border?
  • What do Canadians really expect when it comes to shipping and fees?
  • What role do delivery times play in their online purchasing decisions?

Did you know, for instance, that:

  • 74% of Canadians who previously bought from a U.S.-based e-commerce merchant plan on making as many or even more purchases in the coming year.
  • 33% of Canadian buyers regularly delay their purchases in anticipation of a free shipping event or promotion.
