This Week in eCommerce Data: September 4th, 2020

Welcome to the fifthteenth Week in eCommerce Data, where Friday begins with a dose of ecommerce data. In this week’s roundup, electric vans head to Amazon, millions raised for an ecommerce platform geared towards family caregivers. Plus more!

Weekly insight

This week we were able to see how the long-term effects of the pandemic are changing the way we will be doing commerce for the years to come. Leaders in the industry have been preparing for years for people buying online and adapting their processes and products to serve this new market.

But how can your company compete against giants? Our suggestion is divided in two parts. Get into ecommerce as fast as you can but also differentiate yourself. There are many ways to make your store unique and add value that Amazon cannot — it could be that you have better content and create a community; it could be your unique product customization abilities. That is what we believe will allow brands to keep competing in the next decade.
