This Week in eCommerce Data: July 17th, 2020

Welcome to the eighth Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. This week focuses on fresh ecommerce partnerships that concentrate on high growth in Latin America and India, a big public offering from a cloud-based platform, a slowdown in online sales, and much more.

Weekly insight

Companies — especially big ones — are investing heavily in commerce, the general feeling is that commerce is going to experience faster growth in the following years post-Covid and big platforms, like Salesforce and Amazon, want to be leaders there so they are solidifying their offerings and going all in.

However, there is also a group of companies that are focusing on non-traditional commerce. How do you sell prescriptions? Video content? Can I sell my own dishes on a weekly basis? We have seen a surge of companies developing their own experiences, which is also a niche that is growing.

Regardless if you are a big company or not, it seems that ecommerce is the place to be now and learning a little bit about it may be good for any company.
