From a business point of view, e-Commerce changes the way that consumers and brands interact. It gives consumers the opportunity to buy things without going to a physical store. And it gives brands new ways to engage with consumers through technology.
At the press of a button, you, as an online shopper can buy anything you want, and at any time.
You don’t need to leave home.
You don’t even need to speak to anyone.
For business, this is a huge commercial opportunity. Globally, the e-Commerce market was valued at US$ 3.5 trillion in 2019 following consecutive years of double digit growth.
The Covid-19 pandemic has created a boom in some e-Commerce categories. Reports from earlier in the year put US retailers YOY online revenue growth at almost 70%, for example.
