Shopping Trip

What is a “shopping trip” or shopping mission?

The concept of shopping trip is one of the fundamental elements of shopper marketing. Understanding how and when the shopper is interested in the category makes it possible to adapt the offer and the distribution strategy.

The same buyer can buy the same product in a very different way depending on

  • The moment
  • The opportunity
  • The necessity
  • The recipient

Shopping trips are groupings of similar purchasing behaviors at the point of sale. There are as many shopping trips as there are shoppers and reasons to buy.
