With people returning to their home office after the holidays, one of the most transformative and disruptive years for eCommerce is over.
While many brands struggled as consumer spending shifted, online spending as a whole saw massive growth. And while brick-and-mortar retail declined this year, US consumers will spend an estimated $709.78 billion online in 2020. Seeing 5-10 years of eCommerce growth in six months is enough to keep advertisers busy, but that wasn’t the only effect of COVID-19. Sudden spikes in spending, inventory and supply chain issues, and increased competition all led to a very volatile year.
COVID-19 and its effects on the eCommerce industry aren’t over, but with some foresight, you can be more prepared for the unexpected in 2021. Below are Pacvue’s most popular blog posts, webinars, guides, and news from 2020 to help you start the New Year with the latest best practices and trends.
