The growth of global e-commerce is mind-boggling. In 2017 it reached around $2.3 trillion and is expected to hit $4.5 trillion in 2021 (according to a Statistical report). In the US alone, e-commerce represents almost 10 percent of retail sales — a figure that is growing by nearly 15 percent each year.
As much as 11 percent of online shoppers now shop online via their smart phone on a weekly basis, and 35 percent say it will become their main purchasing tool. Around 39 percent of online shoppers use social networks to get inspiration for purchases.
E-commerce continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and we need to keep up with the latest online shopping trends to continue to boost our clients’ sales and stay ahead of the competition.
