The Future of eCommerce

What will the future of ecommerce look like? A robotic hand pushes a small cart full of presents.

As one might predict, the future of ecommerce looks extraordinarily bright. Year after year, growth has continued for ecommerce businesses, and that was only sped up during the pandemic. But the exciting future for online sales isn’t expected to slow down even after the pandemic.

Brick-and-mortar stores may not compete as heavily with ecommerce markets, but each rely on the other for growth and shopping trends. A popular new option has been the ability to buy online and to pick up in store, and since that feature has been available, brick-and-mortar stores that offered that option saw a rise of roughly 25 percent in revenue.

Many shoppers still prefer the ease and efficiency of home delivery, and shipping and fulfillment will continue to grow soon. This forces the industry to open up more fulfillment centers, creating more jobs both in-house and for deliveries.

Ecommerce is not only focused on business-to-consumer sales but also shoring up relationships and building a brand through business-to-business ecommerce. As more B2B brands shift to the online market, it is expected that the competition will spark more innovation in areas such as marketing, development, and communications.

Advertising is becoming more targeted and more personalized, and thus will cause a rise of in-app purchases through social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. The data collected allows companies to optimize their marketing strategies, and the algorithms in place are great at predicting the desires of buyers.
