Deal Announcement: Hope-Amundson to merge with Coffman Engineers.
Since launching last July, Jet.com has been steadily growing its sale numbers. However, a majority of the sales are coming from new shoppers. This means that the e-tailer is failing to convert shoppers into loyal customers.
Overall, Jet.com’s US sales have been growing by an average 28% per month from September 2015 to February 2016, according to Slice Intelligence. And its February sales were more than 50% higher than September. But it still lags its biggest competitor, Amazon. And until Jet.com begins creating loyal customers, it will remain behind the company it claims to undercut on prices across the board.
