E-commerce is huge, and getting bigger every year.
I wrote this article in January 2020, since March 2020 COVID-19 has driven offline businesses online — and driven consumers indoors. We know that a pandemic like this is having a profound impact on commerce.

Main factors to review the trends:
A new normal has emerged that businesses all over the world must face as a result of the current stay at home economy. More people are shopping online than ever before
e-commerce has been growing worldwide.
shopping habits will be permanently altered even after lockdown measures will be removed.
If you’ve been wondering when to get into e-commerce, the answer is now. !!!!!!!
