How Are We Doing? Tell Us in the Web Retailer Survey 2014
Web Retailer is run for its members. Your feedback is always very welcome, but from time to time we like to ask a little more formally for your opinion on the site – and online selling in general – in a survey.
Our 2014 members’ survey takes around 5-10 minutes to complete (sections are skipped automatically if they are not relevant to you). It is used to understand our members better and improve the website.
You don’t even have to leave the site to take it – it’s right here. So please spare a little time to help us serve you better!
