This Week in eCommerce Data: June 19th, 2020

Welcome to the fifth Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. This week there are encouraging signs of post-pandemic customer behavior for online retailers, shifting shares of total ecommerce sales, and Chinese giants avoiding Wall Street. Here’s what to make of the data.

Weekly Insight

This week we have seen data that confirms that ecommerce solidified its presence as a channel, derived from being the only channel available for people unable to visit stores, and companies that have been preparing for this for years, like L’Oréal, saw important gains during this time.

We also saw ecommerce in general gaining momentum, but more importantly we all expect that commerce will remain as a leader. Many companies will start seeing ecommerce as the leading channel and invest heavily in it. It seems that the pandemic was the last step for ecommerce to finally become the main channel for retailers.

Key eCommerce Data

Walmart’s share in ecommerce sales in the US, surpassing eBay into second place in terms of total share of ecommerce sales. However, Amazon’s dominance remains untouched, which holds 38% of total ecommerce sales in the US.
