Virtual stores are online retail stores which display merchandise. Virtual stores are available for smartphone users wherein the customers scan barcodes of products displayed from a display screen on their smartphones. Virtual stores offer live text chats in order to interact in real time with customers. For example, Homeplus, the second largest virtual store of South Korea offers 500 products including food, electronics, toiletries and so on at its Seolleung virtual store. Virtual store tests are cost-efficient alternatives to in-store field tests. While minimizing the initial capital costs, virtual storesimulations deliver several value-added benefits such as virtual store research, determine customer behaviour in virtual store simulations, understanding in-store behaviour, designing stores and merchandising programs that actually meet the needs of consumers. Virtual stores are 80% experience and 20% commerce.
