- E-Commerce B2C sales will increase by 20% this year to reach $1.500 trillion. Growth will come primarily from the increase in mobile commerce transactions, alternative payment options and the push to new international markets by major brands.
- New data seems to show that social media is being used to search and discover new products. In 2014, e-commerce orders coming from social media grew a staggering 202%.
