This Week in eCommerce Data: October 16th, 2020

Welcome to the twenty first Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. In this week’s roundup, expected global sales that Prime Day took, the growth in B2B. Plus more!

Weekly insight

Traditionally B2B has been a forgotten land for great UX. Once upon a time companies had rustic and abrasive systems to receive buyers and clients – it was accepted that it was a transactional entity only. But 2020 has a way of shaping things into place: as people had to stop communicating via traditional ways, we saw a need for B2B to express business ideas in a better way, and more and more clients requesting for a better experience on the web.

We also see the continuous growth of solutions in Latam, which opens a big possibility for markets like Mexico, Brazil, and other countries.
