SmarterHQ found that 84% of Amazon Prime said they would cancel without free two-day shipping. Yet again in a LivePerson survey of Gen Z and Millennials: 53% in the U.S. said they’d delete social applications from their phone before they’d delete practical apps such as banking, ride-sharing, and shopping.
