Autonomous Commerce: Removing Friction for Your Consumers and Driving Sales for Your eCommerce Business

Room: Harbor I

At its essence, eCommerce exists to make the purchasing experience more seamless for the consumer. This has led to both startups and large retailers creating subscription and auto-replenishment offerings. Adoption of auto-replenishment, as well as the technology behind it, likely only advances in the future as consumers look to automate more of their regular purchases. Megan Harbold from The Mars Agency will share perspective on what auto-replenishment will look like in the near future, and Scott Erickson from 3M will share how his company brought auto-replenishment to life on the Amazon platform, including how it identified the opportunity, got set up with Amazon, and the key learnings they’ve taken away.
