E-commerce has come of age. Long gone are the days when online-shops offered niche products to a handful of early adopters. Today, depending on the industry, up to 75% of all sales are made online. With two-digit growth rates, no business, from book shops to fashion boutiques, food stores to electronics, can afford to leave the online playing field to the competition.
