Current trends in e-commerce


The “headless” online shop is one of the most important, current trends in e-commerce architecture …

adoleo Insight: Headless Commerce

This concept is based on the fact that contents of the shop can be displayed in different places with only one programming. E.g. on online marketplaces, in own retail or in shops of trading partners.


The importance of large marketplaces such as eBay or Amazon is constantly increasing in e-commerce ….

adoleo Insight: Online Marketplaces

Market places are often the much cheaper sales method for dealers. This eliminates many of the costs for own infrastructures and complex shops. Many retailers already rely on a mature mixed model consisting of marketplaces such as Rakuten and eBay and their own shops.


AI / AI is increasingly influencing how dynamically content and prices are adjusted in real-time in online shops …

adoleo Insight: Artificial Intelligence

Completely dynamic e-commerce with ranges tailored to individual preferences has been known since AboutYou's success. However, this model can be scaled to true size with more complex ranges and applied right up to pricing.

Headless (omnichannel) e-commerce, marketplaces and artificial intelligence - you together with adoleo will shape the e-commerce of tomorrow!

Thanks to ready-to-sell e-commerce solutions such asMagento or Shopify and Marketplaces such as eBay or theAmazon Marketplace e-commerce in Europe has grown rapidly in recent years. While many retailers find themselves overwhelmed by the digital transformation and no investments in Information Technology to be able to or want to scale up their business models, successful e-commerce companies like Zalando basically exist ofTech & Development specialists likeFull Stack Developersor Digital Media & Performance Marketing professionalslike SEA Managers.

Accordingly, the gap between the now late starting beginners, who still seek an entry with smaller solutions likeShopware and the more advanced ones already working withSAP hybris or Demandware / Salesforce Commerce Cloudand because of this have reached the next stage of evolution.
In any case, the megatrends in e-commerce apply to all of these market participants, no matter what level of evolution they may be in.

Headless e-commerce, the “headless” online shop, is one of the most important trends. This small revolution makes it possible to technically separate the content of a shop from the shop platform itself. In addition to experienced UX Designer and UI Designer all you need is a good concept, for example from your Director of e-Commerce or e-Commerce Marketplace Manager:
By smartly developing a Progressive Web App (PWA), you can ensure that the content and functions of the shop can be displayed separately. You can, for example, use directly and seamlessly in marketplaces, mobile apps, price search engines, your Brick & Mortar stores, or other locations. An ERP Managercan be helpful to refine this concept.
Who doesn’t employ a PHP Developer, Backend Developeror e-Commerce Project Manager in-house, in order to develop your own PWA for headless e-commerce, you can use ready-made solutions: For example, a Magento Developeroften is already sufficient already to set up a suitable solution with the Magento PWA Studio.

Another megatrend are marketplaces. No matter whether eBay, Amazon, OTTO, or Rakuten: The marketplaces for e-commerce are growing steadily and sustainably. Many retailers have already switched from their own shops to pure marketplace models.
This often eliminates a large part of the technical components, and thus also the costs, of e-commerce. In addition, payment risks are usually covered by the marketplaces so that a Fraud Managerin the company often is not necessary anymore.

All the more important are functions like e-Commerce Marketplace Manager, Category Manager orAmazon Marketplace Manager. Amazon in particular has special requirements for the maintenance of product data in Amazon Seller Central, which are often already full-day and cannot be done on the side.
A skilled Merchandise Manager is also always helpful if you have already taken the step as a company to invest in your own Product Information Management (PIM) system in order to keep product and article data in sync. Here, also hybris / SAP Commerce Cloud Engineers are helpful, if, for example, the widely used hybris is used as PIM and connections to existing ERP systemsor SAP systems become necessary.

The sustainable change through the use of artificial intelligence, often based on insights from Data Science (area of Data & Business Intelligence), in e-commerce is an increasingly important field. Product suggestions in shops are becoming more and more relevant, specialists like the Pricing Manager work almost only data-driven and can thus target prices for individual target groups and segments.

Also the field of Digital Media & Performance Marketing is heavily involved here: In e-commerce, more and more variables of the buying process are recognized by customers, e.g. through through price research, couponing or Affiliate Marketing . This often leads to an “abandoned cart”, ie a shopping cart that has not been checked out and, accordingly, a lack of conversion. What bothers the e-Commerce Analysta good Performance Marketing Managercan see as useful these days by using AI: Offers, coupons, and prices tailored to individual customers in real-time allow the conversion to continue and the sale to be completed.
Unfortunately, however, these are also organizational and technical hurdles that mostly larger online shops nowadays know how to use for themselves.
