What is Friction?
Retail experiences can have positive friction (intentional disruption, such as promotions), or more commonly, negative friction or pain points. Any experience that makes shoppers’ decisions slower or more difficult – negative friction - creates a risk of purchase abandonment, whether offline or online.
Friction points can be offline, online or a combination of the two. Offline or bricks and mortar friction points include things like out of stocks, queue wait times, store congestion, and staff unavailability.
