This Week in eCommerce Data: January 8th, 2021

Welcome to the thirty-third Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. In this week’s roundup, we check out the total value of ecommerce in 2020, returns issues, and store closures. Plus other ecom news elsewhere!

Weekly insight

We saw a couple of trends this week in ecommerce that caught our attention.

Companies are reacting to the voices of their customers and employees when it comes to taking a stand on political matters. This reinforces the idea that customers are more interested now in purchasing from companies that share their values.

We also saw an accelerated decrease in brick-and-mortar closures in an event that could mean an ever lasting change of habits in the way people shop.
