Nielsen and Rakuten Intelligence (formerly Slice Intelligence) announced that they have entered into an exclusive agreement that combines Nielsen’s online purchase data (ePOS) and rich product reference data with Rakuten Intelligence’s consumer sourced panel, the largest e-commerce panel in the world. Released through Nielsen, this combined solution will produce the first complete picture of today’s omnichannel retail landscape for the U.S. fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry, delivering a full view into online and offline market performance and shopper behavior. With this deal, Nielsen now holds the most comprehensive, multi-sourced e-commerce measurement solution for the U.S. market.


Together with Rakuten Intelligence’s best-in-class representative online shopper panel of 5.5 million consumers, Nielsen will gain insight into today’s online shopper and unparalleled visibility into nearly all merchants across all FMCG categories, channels and devices. Rakuten’s proprietary methodology captures and catalogues hard-to-measure buyer data collected directly from consumers. Using item-level purchase details, Rakuten Intelligence offers an in-depth examination of market volume and share, emerging trends, and changes in buyer behavior; revealing the most complete and timely data, across retailers.

Today, 90% of U.S. FMCG online sales is captured by Nielsen. Nielsen’s multi-sourced approach, enabled through a unifying data model, brings unmatched granularity and stability of data to the e-commerce measurement landscape. Working in tandem with Nielsen’s ePOS data and Rakuten Intelligence’s panel insights, Nielsen’s holistic digital shelf solution, available through Nielsen Connected Partner, Profitero, spans over 450 million products on 8,000 websites in over 40 countries every day, enabling companies to correlate online execution drivers with actual sales performance data captured through e-receipts and ePOS retail cooperation.
