Both Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality enhances senses in an eCommerce world and thus work as an extended reality umbrella to create a memorable customer experience, spark word of mouth, strengthen consumers’ bond with your brand, and make people more sure of their purchases.
Virtual reality creates virtual stores and showrooms enabling customers to visit your virtual storefront online from the comfort of their homes. Customers can browse through different item racks similar to being in a store. They can meet with friends in the virtual world and shop together in real-time.
Virtual reality also offers a try-before-you-buy experience which is beneficial to both customers and retail owners. The customer has the ability to see a three-dimensional view of items in the store through a VR headset. He can see possibilities of them without the retailer staffing them all in his showroom. That’s much more interactive than simply selecting upgrades from a list on a computer screen.
Virtual reality builds an in-store experience that surprises and delights, enhances the storytelling of your store, and transports people to the outdoors. In addition, it allows live events to happen with all its being together experience without in-person interaction. Virtual reality also helps the customer to get immersed in a tool that is complicated to use.
