PollBuzzer featured in Bain Retail Holiday Newsletter

December 20, 2013

Amazon has a long history of innovations that keep its customers coming back: 1-Click purchase, reviews, free shipping (with a $35 purchase), Subscribe & Save and same-day delivery. And it continues to invest in speed. The company has spent $13.9 billion on order-fulfillment centers since 2010; it spends more than $2.9 billion a year in shipping costs; and it can now reach virtually the entire US population by two-day ground shipping. This year it expedited deliveries by partnering with the United States Postal Service to offer Sunday delivery. It also rolled out the Vendor Flex program, which ships orders directly from manufacturers’ warehouses. Investments like these have earned Amazon an industry-leading Net Promoter ScoreSM of 82% (Figure 1), well above the scores of traditional retailers according to a Bain/PollBuzzer survey.
