2015 was a fantastic year for ecommerce with many new companies appearing and growing at a fast rate. And so it seems that ecommerce won’t be slowing down any time soon as 2016 looks set to be the year that ecommerce grows even more.
The advance of technology is changing consumer habits and with consumers having such easy access to devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops it is becoming easier and quicker to buy online. These devices play a huge part in sales and are one of the main ways in which people are now buying online.
Not only is it a case of these devices making it easier to shop online it is also a case of social media platforms such as twitter, Facebook and youtube influencing buying habits. Many consumers are likely to check at least one social media website before purchasing an item online and many admit to checking blogs and online videos before they even begin to look for the product.
Ecommerce is becoming more and more sophisticated and there are more people than ever buying online, and with numbers set to increase even more over coming years it seems that ecommerce won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
