E-Commerce is Flying High
Updated: Dec 3, 2020
While traditional retail sales have suffered a major decline this year, it’s a different story for e-commerce.
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the e-commerce industry, maybe more than any other time in history. In fact, the surge in online shopping caused by the pandemic is expected to add £5.3bn to UK e-commerce sales this year.
Most, if not all, brick and mortar stores have taken their business online in order to survive the restrictions. And across the world, people have shifted their buying habits. The lockdown has even forced boomers to shop online, some for the first time. By the end of 2020, global e-commerce sales are expected to reach $4.2 trillion.
