Ordering via the Internet grows & grows

Internet retailing cited that online sales put in their best performance for 2 years during June 2013 growing by an incredible 20% year on year!


This took the average online sales growth this year to a huge 17% compared to the predicted 12% made at the beginning of the year.

Many of us have been discussing the remarkable statistics of online sales this year, with B2B eCommerce giving a stand out performance, set to be double the size of B2C online sales in 2013.

And, despite difficult times, there is no evidence to suggest the growth of online sales will be slowing down! In fact, B2B eCommerce is exceeding all expectations and predictions made – I guess this is obvious to us all when you see more and more industry giants, like Amazon and Google venturing into the online B2B sales arena.

So why has eCommerce grown so dramatically in the past few years?

One reason is said to be introduction of mobile devices, making online shopping even more convenient and accessible. Another, is perhaps because of the investments businesses are making in their online presence, such as the alignment of online/offline experiences with the likes of ‘click and collect’.

“Online sales are set to stay and as the market becomes increasingly crowded it is time invest in the features that will make your eCommerce store stand out from the crowd.”
