YOUR E-COMMERCE OPPORTUNITY REIMAGINED
It may come as no surprise that demand for e-commerce has skyrocketed since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic meaning many small businesses have been forced to diversify and move their enterprises online.
E-COMMERCE IN 2020
• Broadband traffic shot up 90% on Monday 23rd March, the first day of school closures, compared with two weeks previous. Internet usage continues to grow steadily with consumers relying heavily on e-commerce for everything from food and drink to health and beauty products.
• Restrictions on travel have undoubtedly played a part in retail habits across the world, and consumers are becoming increasingly attracted to spending within their local communities. 3 in 5 consumers favour local shops during lockdown and place greater importance on helping local businesses stay afloat during the crisis.
• Statistics show that there has been a 32.8% increase in consumers shopping for groceries online and a 17.8% growth in those ordering takeaway food online in May 2020.
• Alcoholic drinks retailers have seen a significant rush in business as shoppers braced themselves for the uncertainty of lockdown – this translated to around a 20% increase in demand for e-commerce packaging.
