Canadian consumers visit three digital channels on average before buying. 61 per cent conducted at least one online shopping activity prior to purchasing

Canadian consumers visit three digital channels on average before buying, says a new report released Monday by Eagle Eye, a performance marketing company that helps retailers and brands create digital connections with customers.

The key findings from the report include:

  • 61 per cent of Canadian consumers conducted at least one online shopping activity prior to purchase in-store;
  • 64 per cent of Canadian consumers said relevant marketing is very important to them;
  • 59 per cent collected or used loyalty points or vouchers within two weeks of taking the survey; and 
  • Canadian consumers are the most likely (31 per cent) to have visited a social network before making a purchase, compared with 30 per cent in Australia, 29 per cent in the US, and 10 per cent in the UK.
