E-Commerce Growth Up 14%
A recent report from comScore showed E-commerce sales reaching a high of 37.5 billion dollars during the second quarter of this year. If you compare that to the same period last year, that is a 14% increase. That seems crazy in this economy.
I thought this fact was interesting though. Reports show that 70 percent of internet users made at least one online purchase during the second quarter. So that is 70% of the 2 Billion internet users. This second quarter growth is one of 7 quarters of positive growth. We can pretty much expect it to continue growing the next 2 quarters as we enter the holiday season.
Why The Growth?
There could be many factors. We personally feel it is due to the ability to buy online via mobile apps and social media as well as your standard e-commerce websites.
