Asia sits at the top by number of Internet connections though, users’ experience and satisfaction level lags much behind than other countries that have relatively lower number of Internet users; And that too when half of 650 million internet users in ASIA are under the age of 35 years and known for aggressive adoption of new technologies and are the main drivers of e-commerce growth in the region.

A recent study, done by ComScore and UPS, states that only half of online shoppers in ASIA tag themselves as satisfied compare to 83% in the U.S. and 78% in Europe. Such lowest ranking is mainly due to choose delivery schedule, to collect purchased goods at convenient location and upsetting exchange or return policies.
