Discounting has always been used by merchants, and for many reasons: to increase sales, to clear old stock, to gain new customers or retain current ones. Stalling economies, fears of recession, and growing inflation translates into customers being cautious and price sensitive to
a much bigger extent than before. Hence, we can expect greater discounts from most merchants in the coming holiday season.

Apparel & accessories dominate the “on sale” statistics in the Feed Marketing Report 2022, with 36.98% of products being discounted. The leading subcategory is shoes, with an astonishing 42.81% of products on sale.

According to Statista.com, in the second quarter of 2022, online shoppers spent an average of just over 2.6 U.S. dollars per visit across all verticals.

With Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Boxing Day still ahead of us we can expect fierce competition based on discounts, especially across apparel products, health & beauty, and furniture. It’s good news for customers who are always keen on greater discounts.

What records can we expect from the coming months? Will Apparel surpass the 40% discount mark? Will the global average increase to 30%? We have to wait to see, but the holiday season of 2022 will be very interesting to watch.
