Organic Poultry Market 2022 – Opportunities and Strategies Global Forecast to 2030

The Business Research Company Global Organic Poultry Market Report 2022 – Global Market Size, Trends and Forecast 2022-2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, June 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Poultry processors are increasingly using 3D imaging systems to optimize yields. 3D imaging systems model the bird of independent artists and performing arts companies using sensors and actuators to determine the position of the cut. The bird is placed under the vision system, which takes various images and measurements, and the geometry is determined. According to the Organic Poultry Market Analysis, near-infrared sensors determine the amount of meat and bone present in the bird. Vision analysis allows the system to make optimal cuts for every bird, regardless of size and shape. It’s a data-driven process that maximizes output and minimizes unit cost for independent artists and performing arts companies that process meat. Major companies involved in the development of this technology include Gainco, a maker of meat equipment and independent artists and performing arts companies, and Midwest Machine LLC. In July 2020, KFC announced the introduction of new lab-produced 3D printing chicken nuggets.

Advancements in technology are expected to drive the growth of the organic poultry market over the forecast period. New practices involve the use of wireless technologies, GPS positioning and lasers to track meat production and packaging. Meat production and packaging companies should also integrate big data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics and other technologies into their production and packaging practices. According to the Organic Poultry Market Snapshot, these technological developments are expected to drive the market in the future.

Warren Buffett said investors should buy the stocks of big companies and hold them forever. At Motley Fool, we take Buffett’s advice to heart and believe in the power of a long-term perspective in investing.

Everyone likes to find an undervalued good stock. During a market correction, even the shares of the best companies will fall, providing brave investors with a rare opportunity to buy them at a discount. In many ways, the best value investors make their fortunes buying the stocks of battered but otherwise solid companies.

Company

Gildan Sportswear (TSX:GIL)(NYSE:GIL) manufactures and sells various apparel products throughout the world, including its various activewear and underwear products: t-shirts, fleece tops and bottoms, shirts sportswear, shapewear and underwear. The company sells its products to wholesale distributors, screen printers and embellishers, as well as online retailers and lifestyle brands.

GIL posted decent margins for its sector, with an operating margin of 18.80%. The fundamentals are also good, with a return on assets of 11.31% and a return on equity of 37.20%. The company has seen good growth recently, with quarterly revenue growth of 31.40% year-over-year (YoY) and quarterly profit growth of 48.50%. GIL also pays a modest dividend yield of 2.31%.

Evaluation

Currently, GIL is trading at $36.12, which is extremely close to the 52-week low of $35.62. This indicates that the GIL may have bottomed out, especially if volume has fallen.

GIL currently has a market capitalization of $7.07 billion, giving it an enterprise value of $7.9 billion with an enterprise value to EBITDA ratio of 9.55, which is similar to its peers in the consumer discretionary sector.

Over the past 12 months, GIL’s price-to-earnings ratio was 10.8, with a price-to-free cash flow ratio of 17.87, a price-to-book ratio of 3.81, a price-to-sales ratio of of 2.28, and book value per share of approximately $9.81. In terms of these measures, GIL does not appear to be undervalued.

GIL is currently covered by a total of 21 analysts. Among them, 16 issued a “buy” rating, none issued a “sell” rating and five issued a “hold” rating. This is generally considered a bullish sign, since the majority of odds are “buy”.

GIL has a Graham’s number of 27.63 for the past 12 months – a measure of a stock’s upper bound intrinsic value based on its earnings per share and book value per share. Generally, if the stock price is below the Graham number, it is considered undervalued and worth investing in. In this case, GIL does not seem undervalued.

The insane takeaway

Current valuation metrics do not indicate that GIL is sufficiently undervalued to buy with a margin of safety. However, while the current stock price is more or less fairly priced, long-term investors should consider establishing a position if they have the capital. Over the next 10-20 years, your price of entry won’t matter as much if GIL continues its strong track record of growth and profitability. Consistently buying shares of GIL, especially if the market corrects, can be a great way to lock in a low-cost base.

Bundles. Beams as far as the eye can see.

Update June 17: The PS5 is in stock at Game, To analysethe BT Shop, Studio and The game collection. It is sold at Argos, Amazon and EE. Read on for more information.

The PS5 is a year and a half old, but for much of its short life, Sony’s latest console has been notoriously hard to get.

Fortunately, the situation has improved in recent months. Consoles were pretty much in stock throughout May, with Game lead the charge. We’ve had almost 108 restocks during the month – the most we’ve seen since Sony released the console in 2020. And June has continued its momentum so far, with Game, EE and the BT Shop being in stock almost all month.

That said, buying a console on its own is always harder than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re looking for a bundle or the standalone PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital Edition consoles.

Still looking for the elusive PlayStation 5? Our aim is to guarantee you a next-gen machine, as well as providing details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new console, as well as the latest game reviews. If you want to know which online retailers will be restocking first, keep scrolling to get updates as they come.

PS5 Digital Edition vs Disc Edition

Wondering if you should get the digital-only version of the PS5 rather than the one that takes discs? Confused about the differences?

The only difference is that the digital editing console does not have a disk drive. That’s (we guess) why it’s cheaper. If you don’t own physical PS4 games and don’t have a Blu-ray movie collection, it might be a good idea to go with the digital edition.

Games are downloaded from the PlayStation Store and ownership is tied to your PlayStation Network account. Unfortunately, since there’s no disc drive, you won’t be able to play any physical games you might own.

The PlayStation 5 Disc Edition alone costs £449, while the Digital Edition, without the disc drive, is cheaper at £359.

Do I need an additional dualsense controller?

They are sold out now, but lots to ShopTo and Game may come with an extra dualsense controller in the box, but do you really need it?

Local multiplayer is obviously the main reason to get your hands on a second pad. This is essential if you hope to play two-player games such as It takes two one of our favorite PS5 games.

But even if you’re only playing with yourself, it’s handy to have a second controller that can be swapped out and charged when the battery starts to drain.

In our review we said, “It’s the natural next step for a PlayStation controller and arguably the best thing about the console. A second is an essential addition for everyone but the most antisocial player.

The PS5 is still in stock at the BT Shop

EE is completely out of PlayStations, but the BT Shop continues to deliver, as long as you are a BT customer.

The cheapest package is sold out, but when available includes a copy of Horizon: West forbidden (£499.99, Bt.com), although you can get a more expensive bundle with an additional controller (£549.97, Bt.com).

Remember you must be a BT Broadband customer to get an access code, which can be redeemed from your MyBT Portal.

When will Amazon restock the PS5?

Amazon tends to drop the PS5 once a month, and the last restock was earlier this week. It also pretty much always drops the console on a Wednesday morning, around 8am.

That means we don’t expect another restock until mid-July, which is also when Amazon Prime Day takes place.

We don’t expect to see any discounts on the console, but we recommend adding the PS5 to your wishlist now so you can easily check when it’s in stock.

Sign up to buy a PS5 directly from PS Direct

Gamers in the UK can register their interest for a chance to purchase a PS5 direct from PS Direct, Sony’s official storefront for consoles and accessories. If you’re chosen, you’ll get early access to buy the console before anyone else.

All you need is the email address associated with your PSN account and away you go. Invitations are usually sent out at 9:30 a.m. All remaining consoles are made available to everyone else around 11am.

When could Currys restock the PS5?

If you’re hoping to buy a new PS5 from curries, then we’re going to have to disappoint you. The UK’s most delicious retailer is sold out.

Based on previous stock models, we expect Currys to restock the console at least once a month, so we expect another drop soon.

Like so many other stores, Currys likes a bundle. By adding accessories and games to the console, retailers can fend off scalpers and extend the life of a restock.

Is ‘Horizon Forbidden West’ worth it?

Released in February 2022, Forbidden Horizon West (£59.99, Argos.com) quickly became one of the PS5’s best-selling titles. Most PS5 bundles we’ve seen since March have included it, alongside Gran Turismo 7, so chances are that if you’re in the market for a PS5, you’ll pick one of these games up with it.

So is Forbidden Horizon West actually any good? As you’d expect from a first-party Sony title – yes, yes.

In our review, we said: “While Forbidden Horizon West makes great strides in its visual and narrative presentation, it stays on track with its gameplay, making small but noticeable additions that enhance the experience.

“Not much has changed since zero dawnbut when that gameplay revolves around hunting mechanical dinosaurs, why would you want that?”

There are several ways to buy prescription glasses, including local opticians, independent optometrists, optical services at big-box retailers, and online-only sellers. Whichever option you choose, the good news is that prescription glasses don’t have to cost hundreds of dollars.

There are two ways to buy prescription glasses: in person or online. To use an online provider, you will first need to see an eye doctor for a routine exam. It’s surprisingly easy to upload your prescription to buy glasses online.

There are a number of things to consider before deciding where to buy glasses, such as frame quality, lens accuracy, customer service, total price including shipping, return and return policies. reimbursement and accessibility. Using these criteria and my research, here are eight of the best places to order glasses.

THE BEST GLASSES IN STORE

Costco Optical is definitely worth visiting if you’re more comfortable ordering frames in person, which is the traditional way, and you’re a Costco member. Costco Optical is by far my #1 choice for in-store optical services. This is a great place to get a quality eye exam and comprehensive optical services.

Costco Optical’s customer service is extraordinary, much like you would find in the offices of an independent Doctor of Optometry. The big difference is not just how much money you save at Costco, but also the top-notch service after the sale. If you’re not satisfied, Costco will refund you, unless state law prohibits it.

At Costco Optical, an eye exam costs an average of $79. Glasses, including frames and lenses, start at $120.

BEST GLASSES ONLINE

ZenniOptical.com is an industry disruptor when it comes to buying eyewear. The online-only store has the absolute cheapest prices on plastic frames and includes the cost of single vision plastic lenses in those prices – starting at $6.95. Progressive lenses are surprisingly affordable.

You can actually try on frames using the virtual try-on tool (it’s so simple how it works). With its great prices and customer service, Zenni is the best place to buy glasses online.

I have been a customer of Zenni Optical for several years and always find it to be the best place to buy prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. Several times I saw my Costco eye doctor for a routine exam, then went, prescription in hand, to Zenni Optical to select and purchase the glasses. It’s easy.

At Zenni, you’ll find a wide range of frame styles and lens options available, and it’s easy to place an order through their website. You can expect your glasses to ship for $4.95. They usually take three to five business days to arrive.

I should note that while in the past Zenni has not been up to par with their customer service, the company has really stepped it up in recent years. I have never had a problem. In fact, once when I needed a return when the frames weren’t fitting well, Zenni replaced my purchase promptly with no questions asked. Zenni’s customer service is excellent.

OTHER BEST PLACES

Costco Optical and Zenni Optical aren’t the only great places to buy prescription glasses. However, due to lack of space here and for your convenience, I have compiled details of six additional best sources for buying eyeglasses at EverydayCheapskate.com/eyeglasses.

GOOD TO KNOW

Cheap prices from online retailers can be very appealing. Remember that before ordering from a site like Zenni Optical, you must have an exam and an updated prescription from an ophthalmologist. Once you have this in hand, the online provider will walk you through the steps to submit your prescription.

You will also need to know your pupillary distance, which is the space between the centers of your pupils, measured in millimeters. Some frames will not work with certain pupillary distances because the center of the lenses will either be too wide or too narrow. You need a perfect fit.

If your pupillary distance is already noted on your prescription, you are good to go. Otherwise, many doctors will provide this information upon request.

Under the Federal Trade Commission’s eyewear rule, physicians must:

— Give you a prescription for glasses at the end of your examination.

— Do not charge extra or sign a waiver in exchange for the prescription.

— Do not require that you buy your glasses from the ophthalmologist to obtain your prescription,

In some states, your doctor is also required to give you your pupillary distance. You can still request it even if it is not included in your prescription. If all else fails and you have a doctor who just isn’t cooperating, you can follow Zenni Optical’s guide on their website on how to measure your pupillary distance at home.

During the first COVID lockdown, subscription businesses experienced unprecedented growth. From coffee to cars, nothing was off limits, and subscriptions went from a revenue strategy to a movement. Thanks to the unlimited adrenaline rush of recurring revenue, investor love for subscription businesses has only grown by leaps and bounds. Then suddenly the world awoke from its stupor.

The undeniable king of pandemic subscriptions – Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) – lost subscribers for the first time in 10 years in the first quarter, 200,000 of them!. And more recently, major DTC and online retailers have also struggled with steadily declining visitor traffic. Subscription fatigue was no more than a hypothesis.

Why is the subscription engine running out of steam?

Of course, there is always war, its indiscriminate slaughter of oil reserves and the anxiety of a potential recession, but the kryptonite of discretionary subscriptions isn’t just economic prudence. According to Adobe’s Digital Economy Report, BNPL (buy-now-pay-later) transactions increased by 500% through fall 2020.

This means that even during the subscription frenzy, consumers (and subscribers) were looking for ways to keep their money closer. Now that physical commerce is drawing its curtains, customers can finally exercise greater control by moving from macro to micro transactions.

Instead of a four-bottle/week milk subscription, they can buy milk by the carton based on their needs, and instead of a bundled subscription box, they can choose individual products tailored to their needs. The infallible truth is that one-time expenses, while more inconvenient, are also more flexible than long-term recurring commitments.

If that wasn’t enough, it’s probably easier for subscribers to cancel now than ever before. First, New York State joined 25 other states in making subscription information more transparent – ​​requiring clarity of cancellation for subscribers through its model subscription law. (2020). On the other hand, Mastercard and Visa have extended this same transparency to negative option billing and free trials, making cancellation links mandatory during or before renewal communications.

Influence > Control

Our observations of over 4,500 subscription-driven businesses confirmed a basic hypothesis: subscription churn and poor net performance scores (an indicator of customer experience) are the corollaries of complicated customer journeys.

Giving consumers the choice to opt out, although it seems counterintuitive, has worked well in the past. Take the case of the CAN-Spam Act, which was first introduced in 2003. It made it mandatory to include a “clear and prominent explanation of how the recipient can opt out of receiving emails ” (and therefore the email unsubscribe button). . Obviously, the marketers weren’t too amused.

Almost two decades later, the unsubscribe button still exists and readers haven’t gone anywhere. In 2022, there are an estimated 4.3 billion active email readers, and by 2025 that number will reach 4.6 billion.

What changed? Mail-tech in evolution. Today’s emails are more personalized and time and context sensitive than ever before. Instead of the unsubscribe button being a pain in the ass, it now works effectively to filter out indifferent readers or non-ideal profiles from your list.

The new regulatory and industry focus on subscription-driven businesses is no different. It’s a recognition that any subscription-based e-commerce business is in a marketplace built to serve its customers. And sometimes you have to accept that a customer may no longer need what you are selling.

How, then, to think about retaining customers without exerting coercion? Simple.

Understand that while you cannot stop exits, you can influence exit points.

Many subscription-based e-commerce businesses use incentivization as their primary customer retention strategy – without fully understanding exit intent. Here’s a tip: it doesn’t always pay off!

While pricing is important, your subscriber’s relationship with your business is a derivative of “perceived value.” Therefore, for the same product, the motivation to use the expected benefits and the “demand” would vary for each customer. When cultivating customer relationships, and more importantly, exiting, analyze these individual motivations before trying to stop churn. Especially in the post-Covid context.

If your subscriber has recently been put on leave, it would be rather insensitive to ask them to renew their “monthly wellness box”. Acknowledging that your product is not a priority for them at the time and instead presenting them with a solution to suspend the subscription will go a long way in retaining those customers.

Our benchmark analysis shows that breaks had a higher acceptance rate of up to 50% compared to discounts (up to 30%) at the time of cancellation and were more effective as an offer both to deflect and avoid customers from churn.

Not all customers are equal

By extension, offering personalized offers to your subscribers has a better reward-risk ratio. If you were to offer a significant loyalty offer to a newly onboarded customer who doesn’t fit your ideal customer profile (ICP), they would still accept the offer. But they would also be eager to leave once the benefits expire.

On the other hand, if you present that same offer to a long-time customer who had been very engaged before choosing to unsubscribe, they are not only more likely to convert, but it also becomes a great opportunity for you to understand the reason behind their planned release and build similar propositions and solutions for long-term customers – turning them into brand advocates.

And that is the magic of “the art of letting go”. Instead of chasing after lost leads, you’ll spend more time nurturing strong relationships and leveraging them into your acquisition strategy. Your business will probably thank you too.

So if you think about it, every exit point is also an acquisition funnel. Instead of hanging on, consider selling a product that suits them better, redirecting them to a better pricing plan, or using exit feedback (when customers are the most honest) to refine your product roadmap and minimize the output load in the future. .

Be omnidirectional in your retention strategy. Look beyond loyalty discounts, think beyond cancellation points, and think of customers as individuals, not numbers on the balance sheet.

When the largest prepared meal delivery service in the United States, Freshly, experimented with personalized offers based on reasons for cancellation, length of commitment, and customer lifetime value (LTV), they learned that customers with higher LTV stopped more frequently to return at a higher rate. This idea has led to targeting longer-term customers with offers to flexibly suspend and manage their accounts. Customers experiencing financial difficulties saw different offers. At the same time, students saw recommendations tailored to their specific needs, for example, suspending their account for summer vacation. Their updated, hyper-personalized retention strategy resulted in an additional $1 million revenue forecast over a 52-week period.

Ultimately, retention becomes a function of the perceived value of your customers and the value generated by the customer for your business. But more importantly, it makes your customer retention funnel aware, accepting, and more importantly, acknowledging the idea that the decision to stay (or leave) should rest entirely with your e-commerce customers.

Customer relationships are driven by change, not inertia

The rapidly changing customer perception of subscriptions is also emblematic of an overarching product and technology narrative – that our thinking and approach to customers, their needs and our relationships with them must evolve. .

In 2011, when marketing gurus Susan Fournier and Jill Avery were dissecting the strange growth of CRM tools and big business leaders were willing to spend to bolster unit profitability, they pointed out the lack of continuity in thought and action – “… companies fail to recognize that relationships are two-way and that these relationships evolve with each interaction. While managers like to take credit for successful relationships, they must also be willing to look inward to understand why relationships break down. By failing to treat relationships as dynamic works in progress, companies walk away from relationships that could generate significant value.”

A year after this article, Kodak – the company that democratized video and photography – declared bankruptcy. But in all honesty, everyone saw it coming. The company was so enamored with its own idea of ​​”analogue photography” that it lent a deaf year (in fact resisted) when the world gradually shifted to digital photography.

For subscription-driven businesses, “today” is the same inflection point. We may exert willful resistance, but the truth silently pervades and hovers around us like music in elevators – inertia kills innovation. For subscriptions to see tomorrow, companies need to get out of their heads and let customer interactions guide loyalty strategy, product roadmap, or even the future of subscriptions as an industry.

The decline of cybercriminal gangs reduces the spread of ransomware by 25% in Q1 2022

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The new Phishing Trends Report reveals that in the first quarter of 2022, the APWG observed 1,025,968 total phishing attacks, the worst quarter for phishing observed by the APWG to date. This quarter was the first time the three-month total exceeded one million. APWG saw 384,291 attacks in March 2022, which was a record monthly total.

In Q1 2022, APWG founding member OpSec Security reported that phishing attacks against the financial sector, which includes banks, remained the largest set of attacks, accounting for 23.6% of all phishing. Attacks against webmail and software-as-a-service (SAAS) providers also remained common, while attacks against retail/e-commerce sites fell from 17.3% to 14.6% after the holiday shopping season. Phishing against social media services increased significantly from 8.5% of all attacks in 4Q2021 to 12.5% ​​in 1Q2022. Phishing against cryptocurrency targets, such as cryptocurrency exchanges and wallet providers, fell from 6.5 in the prior quarter to 6.6% of attacks.

John Wilson, senior threat researcher at APWG member HelpSystems, tracks the spoofing technique known as “Business Email Compromise” (BEC). Wilson noted that “In the first quarter of 2022, 82% of business email compromise messages were sent from free webmail accounts. Of these, 60% used Gmail.com. For the 18% of messages BECs sent from domains controlled by attackers, NameCheap was the most popular registrar.

“A third of all maliciously registered domains used for BEC attacks were registered through NameCheap,” Wilson pointed out.

APWG member PhishLabs by HelpSystems analyzes malicious emails reported by enterprise users. John LaCour, Senior Product Strategist at PhishLabs by HelpSystems, said, “In the first quarter of 2022, we saw a 7% increase in phishing credential theft against enterprise users, up to nearly 59% of all malicious emails. LaCour also noted that spoofing attacks accounted for 47% of social media threats, up from 27% in the prior quarter.

“A lot of companies don’t realize their executives are being impersonated on social media. It’s a huge business risk,” LaCour said.

On another front, APWG member Abnormal Security documents the dangerous nature of ransomware for all manner of businesses. Abnormal Security found that the total number of ransomware attacks decreased by 25% in the first three months of 2022, falling to a level similar to that observed by Abnormal in the third quarter of 2021. This decrease appears to be primarily caused by a sharp drop in attacks from two prolific cybercriminal gangs, Pysa and Conti, known to develop and deploy large-scale ransomware.

Crane Hassold, Director of Threat Intelligence at Abnormal Security, said “The demise of Pysa and the significant drop in attack volume from Conti clearly had a substantial impact on the overall ransomware landscape in the first quarter of the year. This demonstrates the centralized nature of the ransomware landscape, which means that a relatively small number of groups are responsible for the majority of attacks, which also means that any action taken against these groups (disrupting law enforcement, downtime of infrastructure, etc.) can have a noticeable impact on the overall volume of attacks.

“It’s very different from something like BEC, which is highly decentralized, where removing dozens or even hundreds of actors wouldn’t have as much of an overall impact on attack volume because there’s no no ‘head of the snake’ to go after,” Hassold said.

The top industries hit by ransomware in the fourth quarter of 2021 were manufacturing, business services, finance, and retail and wholesale businesses, Hassold said.

Last month, 71% of British Columbians told Research Co. and Glacier Media that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic was “behind us” and a similar proportion (72%) expressed a desire to visit to relatives or friends in person over the next fortnight. These results suggest that residents of the province are ready to return to the way life was in 2019.

The way we buy has changed dramatically over the past two years. Fear of contagion has led many of us to order groceries online. Yet there are groups of British Columbians who continue to harbor concerns about their digital information.

In 2022, we see little movement in the number of British Columbians who participate in specific technology-related activities at least a few times a month. More than seven in 10 residents of the province visit blogging websites (89%, up two points since 2021), access banking information (87%, down one point), search for deals on websites (81%, up two points), using an instant messaging service (79%, up two points) and looking for directions and/or maps to get to a destination (73%, up four dots).

The needle did not move significantly for four other activities: buying goods on a website (60%, unchanged), posting on social media (57%, down two points), uploading photos or Internet videos (53%, up three points) and using the Internet to make phone calls (39%, down two points).

Some may have expected the end of the pandemic to prompt British Columbians to visit stores more often. The answer, as with many technology-related questions, varies by resident age. While 50% of British Columbians say they buy goods from a website “once a month or less,” the proportion drops to 30% among 35-54 year olds and 24% among 18-34 year olds. younger adults, the Internet is preferable to a physical location.

There is also little change in residents’ level of concern about a setback when using technology. Just over half of British Columbians have “occasionally” or “frequently” worried about two issues in the past two months: their personal information being stolen over the Internet (51%, down two points) and use of computers and technology to invade their privacy (also 51%, down two points). Slightly fewer residents were worried about someone hacking into their computer or smartphone (46%, down three points).

Our level of comfort in undertaking specific tasks online is also similar to last year. Significant majorities of British Columbians say they are “very comfortable” or “moderately comfortable” using a computer to shop (89%, up two points) and to access banking information (87 %, unchanged).

The numbers are lower when British Columbians are asked about making a charitable donation online (73%, unchanged) and commenting on an online forum that requires their email address (56%, up two points).

More than three in four British Columbians (78%) have more than one email address. This leaves 22% of residents dealing with everything at one address – a proportion that rises to 31% among those aged 55 and over.

Some of the nuisances we identified last year continue to clutter British Columbians’ inboxes, with 63% (up two points) saying they’ve received a “phishing” message, in which a sender tries to acquiring personal information by impersonating a trustworthy entity. . There is also an increase (58%, up four points) in emails offering money for the recipient’s help or assistance.
Fewer British Columbians admit to having caught a virus while browsing the Internet (31%, unchanged), having had their social media platform hacked (16%, up one point) or having hack their email address (15%, unchanged).

More than three in five British Columbians (62%) have typed their name on Google to see what the internet is saying about them – a proportion that rises to 64% among women and 69% among 18-34 year olds. While 27% of these curious residents found nothing, 61% said the information they got was accurate. Only 12% say they have come across what can safely be called “fake news” about them on the internet.

Our annual look at how British Columbians relate to digital tools leaves us with two observations. First, there is a gender gap on some of these issues. Women are much more likely than men (46%) to “occasionally” or “frequently” worry about their personal information falling into the wrong hands (55%). Female respondents are also less likely than their male counterparts to feel “very comfortable” handling tasks such as online banking and shopping.

Finally, charities continue to face a huge problem as British Columbians are much more likely to trust online retailers to handle their information properly. There is a 17 point difference in extreme comfort level for online shopping (43%) and online charitable giving (26%). Some people want to give but are obviously put off by the appearance of some websites.

Mario Canseco is president of Research Co.

The findings are based on an online survey conducted May 26-28, 2022 of 800 adults in British Columbia. The data was statistically weighted according to Canadian census counts for age, sex and region in British Columbia. The margin of error – which measures the variability of the sample – is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Why I’m Billed Less Than You, and What You Can Do About It https://chargersnflofficialonline.com/why-im-billed-less-than-you-and-what-you-can-do-about-it/ Sat, 04 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 https://chargersnflofficialonline.com/why-im-billed-less-than-you-and-what-you-can-do-about-it/ EXPLAIN : Dynamic pricing has been around since people started trading things, but it’s quite different on your laptop than it is on the Silk Road.

EXPLAIN : Dynamic pricing has been around since people started trading things, but it’s quite different on your laptop than it is on the Silk Road.

With the cost of living now the top national concern, as Consumer NZ said, and prices rising around us, what we pay and why is more interesting than ever.

Dynamic pricing really hit the nail on the head when Uber came along with its upside pricing, and there were calls for companies to be more transparent about how they charge customers.

What’s in it for us when prices are constantly changing, and is it something we should try to avoid?

* Costs are rising in all areas. How do you know if a price increase is justified?
* How you can end up paying more than other customers who shop online
* We tried to search for flights using different browsers. Here is what happened

What is dynamic pricing?

When a company adjusts its prices to change people’s behavior, that’s dynamic pricing, says Dr Martyn Gosling, senior lecturer in marketing at Victoria University of Wellington.

A low-tech example allows SuperGold cardholders to travel for free outside peak hours on public transport. The bus will still operate between 9am and 3pm, so why not try to push people around then and deter them from rush hour services?

Dynamic pricing really hit the nail on the head when Uber came along with its peak pricing.

Dynamic pricing really hit the nail on the head when Uber came along with its peak pricing.

It is also the sushi shop which lowers its prices at 4 p.m., the cinema which offers student reductions on a Tuesday evening, or the airline company which offers cheap seats during quiet hours.

At the more high-tech end of the spectrum is Uber’s price hike, which comes into effect during times of high demand. Uber says it’s to make sure people who need a ride can get one. Raising prices to see which customers stay up doesn’t hurt Uber’s bottom line either

The methods are many and varied, but the goal is to get you to change your behavior.

Who did it?

Basically everyone. If you were tempted to shop somewhere because of an incredible sale, you were subjected to a dynamic price.

“Every business has a sell – I’m sending you a signal, come get it now. It’s as old as the exchange itself,” Gosling says.

What’s in it for us?

Obviously a bargain. If you are flexible, you can take advantage of cheap things at unpopular times.

It could also mean being shown something you didn’t realize you needed. A company like Amazon, which can track what you buy and can afford algorithms, can suggest an item to you knowing that you’re more likely to pay a little more for something you’re clearly interested in.

The information may also be used to offer discounts to loyal customers, for example.

So, can anyone charge whatever they want?

Companies charge what they think people will pay. Above all, they cannot get along, which is illegal.

Raising prices above previous levels is not illegal in New Zealand. Nor is there a law here against price discrimination, which is sometimes characterized as maximum willingness to pay, says Jon Duffy, chief executive of Consumer NZ.

If they give a reason for a price, it must be accurate or it may violate the Fair Trading Act.

In the modern digital economy where there is no generally accepted price for a product because what you are charged may be different from what I have paid, this is a challenge to the Fair Trading Act which prohibits misleading representations about the price of something.

“What you are charged may be different than what I am charged due to what time I came to the website, or what the website knows about me, so this is a price evolution really interesting. Our laws don’t necessarily follow this evolution,” says Duffy.

What are the disadvantages ?

The main downside is when you have to buy something now and you have no choice.

One of the bugbears is concert tickets. In 2020, Crowded House insisted that fans who purchased tickets for a tour at Ticketmaster’s various “In Demand” prices be refunded. Fans have long complained about the outrageous prices charged for the limited supply of tickets to the shows.

The technology means there is a lack of transparency about why people are being charged a certain price, and there is also a potential power imbalance between company and consumer.

“In order to make informed decisions, consumers need clear information, and dynamic pricing prevents them from having it,” says Dr Bodo Lang, associate professor of marketing at the University of Auckland.

“It makes it a little harder to make good decisions because you have changes in information, and price is one of the most important attributes people consider when buying products and services. “

Crowded House insisted that fans who purchased tickets at the various prices

GLENN JEFFREY / Stuff

Crowded House insisted that fans who purchased tickets at Ticketmaster’s various “In Demand” prices be refunded.

Whenever an organization reaches a certain size and market power, you have to be careful that it doesn’t engage in predatory behavior.

Lang says Uber’s price hike isn’t that much of a concern because there are alternatives such as bus, train or taxi.

The price of basic foodstuffs that people have no choice but to buy, such as groceries or fuel, is more important.

Duffy says the biggest problem for consumers sometimes is that they don’t know it’s happening. People get upset when they feel that prices are unfair or that a company is making hay while the sun is shining.

“Uber is relatively clear that the surge applies, so you’re not necessarily misled,” he says.

:But there is widespread consumer dissatisfaction with the surge because it appears to be exploiting scarcity and taking advantage of the fact that people are desperate to get home after an event and there is a transport shortage.

What is not dynamic pricing?

A company charging more based on what it thinks the next shipment will cost is not the same as changing its prices to change customer behavior.

“Fuel is a good example. You’re not buying today’s fuel, you’re buying tomorrow’s fuel,” says Gosling.

“It also happens in all areas. It’s just normal inflation, it’s not dynamic pricing, it’s survival.

Companies are also changing their prices due to shortages or growing demand elsewhere. In New Zealand, rising dairy and meat prices are causing anger because of the volumes we produce, but what we pay is not based on what we can buy in New Zealand, but rather on the international price.

How do you get around it?

Many people won’t even know it’s happening because their visit to the website or platform is a one-time thing, so there’s no point of comparison.

You can override it in flight if you change the time you want to fly.

You can try deleting cookies from your computer and opening a tab in an incognito window to see if a website offers you a different price.

Plus, if you don’t buy a product the first time you look at it online, you may get a discount, Lang says.

Retailers are very aware that many online shopping journeys are abandoned when products are already in the cart.

“So the question for online retailers is how do you close the sale? As we’ve known from decades of marketing research, you give people an incentive, and an incentive is “hey, you’ve already looked at this shirt, now it’s 10% cheaper”.

More than 80 high-level representatives representing up to 30 positions worldwide, including more than 20 CEOs, gathered in Vienna for the 2022 IPC annual conference on May 24-25, after a two-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Organized by Österreichische Post, the theme of this year’s IPC Annual Conference was “Postal Innovation for the Future of E-Commerce”.

Holger Winklbauer, CEO of IPC, said: “E-commerce throughout the pandemic has been described as breathing new life into the postal sector. Today we find ourselves in a very different world from that of our last conference. The war in Ukraine has caused energy prices to rise and costs worldwide have increased. Despite all this, e-commerce continues to offer great potential to all postal operators, albeit at a slower pace. Posts have benefits, but innovation is key to meeting customer needs. »

The rise of e-commerce driven by the Covid-19 pandemic has enabled global e-retailers to have sufficient volumes to provide their own delivery solutions and e-commerce platforms to offer chain delivery solutions to SME. The annual IPC conference looked at how Posts should innovate to compete with global online retailers, platforms, integrators and digital native start-ups.

The annual conference featured four keynote speakers who shared their thoughts on rapidly changing customer needs and expectations for e-commerce delivery, including: Andreas Marschner, Vice President of Amazon Transportation Services Europe; Benoit Robinot-Bertrand Director of EU Transportation Amazon; Dennis Li, General Manager of Eastern and Northern Europe at Cainiao Network; and Malte Hans, Associate Partner, McKinsey & Company.

At IPC’s annual meeting of shareholders held prior to the annual conference, IPC members unanimously approved a new IPC member. Omniva (Estonia) will become IPC’s 26th member from July 2022. A key player in the Baltic region, Omniva provides national and international postal and logistics services, with more than 80% of its revenue derived from e-commerce. Omniva has been an active player in many IPC services and has used INTERCONNECT since its launch.

Mart Mägi, CEO of Omniva, said: “For us, IPC represents the values ​​of excellence, innovation and teamwork, which for us, as a small, innovative country, are very important. I believe that Omniva can bring a lot to the IPC, but we also have a lot to gain from cooperation with other Posts through the IPC”.
