Unfortunately, this year has shown another aspect of online shopping and ecommerce, as due to the coronavirus pandemic we had to undergo several strict restrictions, such as remote work, self-isolation and curfew. Consequently, ecommerce has been among the very few industries that have experienced quick and unexpected boom. During the first wave of the pandemic suddenly everybody had to change their shopping habits, and numbers of ecommerce have multiplied. According to Insider Monkey’s research, all this has resulted a jaw-dropping 129% YOY growth in the US alone, and it is still increasing even today, as the pandemic is pretty far from the end.
