What Does A Cookieless World Mean For eCommerce brands

What is “a cookieless world”? Cookies from third parties are used to track a user’s online activities in an anonymous manner. Because of this, marketers can design carefully tailored programs and precisely gauge their effectiveness. Cookies are really helpful for marketers, but they make customers more concerned about their privacy. For this reason, third-party cookie usage is no longer available in browsers like Mozilla’s Firefox and Apple’s Safari. And Google will also discontinue assisting third-party cookies sometime in 2022. Google plans to put more of an emphasis on “privacy-preserving” technology. This signals the end of the data-driven, highly targeted performance advertising that advertisers have established over the previous two decades.

A cookieless world for eCommerce?

The quantity and quality of the data available to advertisers will decline after third-party cookies are no longer available. Many eCommerce brands, retailers, and marketplaces rely on retargeting. Both the cost of acquiring new customers and the return on advertising investment will rise as a result. However, businesses may adapt to this new reality by utilizing a wider variety of data sources and looking into other technologies.
