eCommerce is here to stay

In 2008 online sales accounted for 8.6% of all sales in the UK and by 2012 that figure had risen to 13.2%. That’s a little over a 50% increase in 5 years, with 14% increase being seen last year alone!

According to research carried out by the Centre for Retail Research, in 2011, online sales in the UK accounted for £50.34 billion. For 2012 they expected that figure to increase to £57.39 billion, so as the volume of online sales continues to grow year upon year, it’s clear that eCommerce offers enormous opportunities.

Allow customers to buy from you without the constraints of time or distance.

Benefits for your business & your customers

A well designed online shop can prove a business to be as professional and credible as its larger competitors. eCommerce is a powerful and profitable channel which can offer many benefits for both your business and your customers, including:

  • Convenience of choice, up to date stock levels and product information for your customers.
  • Savings for your customers through deals, discounts and loyalty schemes.
  • Lower operating costs compared to a traditional bricks and mortar business for both starting-up and on-going.
