While shopping at physical locations still remains a useful option for people to get groceries and other essentials, more and more people are turning to online stores. E-commerce platforms offer businesses a way of reaching a wider audience. These digital stores are also convenient for the customer - as they are now able to buy anything from food to clothing and more from the comfort of their couch.
In 2020, over four billion dollars were spent on eCommerce stores. It is estimated that this figure will increase to over six billion by the year 2024. Worldwide, e-commerce sales will account for an estimated 18.1% of all retail sales recorded in the year 2021.
