This Week in eCommerce Data: September 18th, 2020

Welcome to the seventeenth Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. In this week’s roundup, we see the amount of extra ecommerce revenue stemming from the pandemic, the drop in Spotify’s shares, and the forecasted growth of holiday ecommerce. Plus more!

Weekly insight

As Covid-19 continues to take over 2020, we haven seen how most companies are preparing for a bigger holiday season. 2020 is expected to be the biggest season ever, and so the more your site is prepared for that, the better it will be for your company.

We are also seeing companies like Amazon and Walmart taking advantage of the opportunity to solidify their online presence in other areas — Amazon doing podcasts, Walmart innovating in digital services — that are betting on the growth of ecommerce in the years to come.
