An on-trend sales increase:
How rue21 connected with tech-savvy shoppers and upped its average order values by 73%.
As a popular retailer of trendy and affordable clothing for Gen Z and Millennials, rue21 was looking for a modern way to connect with its younger, tech-savvy audience in order to drive sales and increase conversions.
Even before the pandemic, the typical mall experience had been fading into the background. rue21 was looking for a way to keep up with a new generation of fashion lovers who do the majority of their shopping in the fast-paced digital world. These unique customers, aged 18-25, use credit cards far less than their predecessors and have little patience for long, clucky, or antiquated checkout experiences, whether they are shopping online or in-store.
Furthermore, with so many small-ticket items available online, lifting the average order volume was an ongoing challenge for rue21.
We were actively seeking ways to put more purchasing power into our customers’ hands by offering quick and easy alternative payment methods that are available everywhere they shop, without slowing down.
Robert Brous, rue21’s VP of Ecommerce & Digital
