Personalisation remains key in the battle to attract online customers, a new report confirms. According to research among 200 UK retailers, 90% of retailers have implemented some form of personalisation strategy.
UK-based online marketplace OnBuy.com has raised £35m in series A+ funding. This will enable it “to further develop its product offering for both sellers and consumers and importantly, pursue global expansion”.
