Categorizing Online Shopping Behavior from Cosmetics to Electronics: An Analytical Framework

10/06/2020 ∙ by Sohini Roychowdhury, et al. ∙ 0

A success factor for modern companies in the age of Digital Marketing is to understand how customers think and behave based on their online shopping patterns. While the conventional method of gathering consumer insights through questionnaires and surveys still form the bases of descriptive analytics for market intelligence units, we propose a machine learning framework to automate this process. In this paper we present a modular consumer data analysis platform that processes session level interaction records between users and products to predict session level, user journey level and customer behavior specific patterns leading towards purchase events. We explore the computational framework and provide test results on two Big data sets-cosmetics and consumer electronics of size 2GB and 15GB, respectively. The proposed system achieves 97-99 predictions and categorizes buying behavior into 5 clusters with increasing purchase ratios for both data sets. Thus, the proposed framework is extendable to other large e-commerce data sets to obtain automated purchase predictions and descriptive consumer insights.
