This Week in eCommerce Data: June 26th, 2020

Welcome to the sixth Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. This week we look at ecommerce’s performance on Father’s Day, how fast mid-sized online retailers are growing, and a look at the largest economies in Europe and South America… Plus more!

Here’s what to make of the data.

Weekly insight

This week we saw how events and situations that tend to rely on parties and gatherings are being supported by gifts and commerce products. It may seem that humanity is finding a way to show they care, even if temporarily it means doing it by sending a gift.

On a more important note, most of the brands took a sales hit during the last few months, so our advice is to be cautious about investment during the year — make every dollar count.

Lastly we are full with excitement when we see emerging markets embracing commerce. Out of necessity many markets are finding their way into the online marketplace and we are happy to see it. The next step for companies is to compete in this space which is going to be a lot of fun.
