Attention B2C businesses! Are you wondering why you may be experiencing a fall in sales? It might have something to do with online shopping – an industry that now dominates traditional marketplaces. A whopping 71% of customers believe better deals can be found online. In the US alone, 90% of Internet users (201.1 million) engage in e-commerce – a five percent increase from 2009 (163.1 million). A trend has been triggered amongst online industries to offer e-commerce options, including social media sites and blogs. The US e-commerce sales statistics indicate a significant increase in the net worth of the online retail industry from $264 billion in 2012 to $304 billion in 2014. Similarly Australia’s, online retail industry grew 11.3% from $13 billion in 2013 to $14.9 billion in 2014. If you don’t think that e-commerce is a power in Australia, you should keep in mind that Australia’s version of eBay had a cumulative total of 23.1 million visits in one week. If that isn’t online power, I don’t know what is. The fact of the matter is that if you’re an online retailer and you don’t support your own e-commerce system, then you are missing out on a massive, ever-growing marketplace!
