A whopping 42% of all purchases last year were made online. E-commerce, or online buying and selling, is a trillion-dollar industry that is helping companies increase their profits by making purchasing their goods and services more convenient. Statistica states, “E-commerce statistics confirm the explosive pace at which this industry has developed as worldwide B2C e-commerce sales amounted to more than 1.2 trillion US dollars in 2013.”
Online shopping via smart phone or tablet is common. According to Statistica, “Current e-commerce statistics state that 40 percent of worldwide internet users have bought products or goods online via desktop, mobile, tablet or other online devices. This amounts to more than 1 billion online buyers and is projected to continuously grow.”
Holiday shopping can bring your business a huge profit. Black Friday marks the beginning of the winter holiday shopping season and is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Cyber Monday (and now Cyber Week) have now become a part of the annual retail event. Cyber Monday and Week are becoming increasingly popular because consumers want the best prices and to shop without waiting in line, and businesses are wise to accommodate.
