In fact, 42% admitted to abandoning a planned purchase altogether because there was too much choice.
To prevent decision paralysis, 68% of shoppers want their favorite brands or retailers to provide them with honest and personal advice, while 44% expect proactive product recommendations and tips when shopping online.
