E-commerce

Bespoke and off the shelf e-commerce platforms

What is e-commerce?

Electronic commerce, better known as Ecommerce (or E-Commerce), the buying and selling of products and services online, has seen exponential growth over the last few years, across B2C websites as well as online marketplaces such as Amazon.

What are the current trends in e-commerce?

With a revenue of £2089.6 billion, it is fair to say that the UK e-commerce industry is a rapidly growing sector and one that is expected to expand further for some time to come.

Forecast trends include omnichannel retail, as online and offline shopping are increasingly seen as one continuous experience. Many shoppers will go instore to check out a product, only to buy it online later at their convenience. Similarly, others will start their shopping research online but conclude it by purchasing instore.

Social media is playing an increasingly important role as a sales channel, with the rise of influencers assisting with product awareness and conversion.

And subscription e-commerce is also on the rise, with consumers preferring to pay a recurring fee in return for items from categories such as fashion, beauty, health, grocery and household shipped right to their door on a regular basis.

How can my business benefit from e-commerce?

From personalisation, use of social media e-commerce, omnichannel marketing and faster delivery, there are many different strategies you can use to differentiate your brand, attract and retain customers and drive revenue growth.
