This week in eCommerce – 20th April 2020
When we sense there is something important happening we will aim to bring you the latest this week in eCommerce. This week we’re looking at how sales are impacted during the Coronavirus.
During these uncertain times, many businesses have been considering online strategy, either just by increasing their online presence in general, or by launching an eCommerce solution to run alongside their Bricks and Mortar stores.
Is it time to move to eCommerce?
We would encourage businesses more than ever to start selling online. This quote and figures from Shopify’s Chief Technical Officer, Jean-Michel Lemieux helps explain why;
As we help thousands of businesses to move online, our platform is now handling Black Friday level traffic every day!— Jean-Michel Lemieux (@jmwind) April 16, 2020
It won’t be long before traffic has doubled or more.

Worldwide the Shopify Platform is reaching near Black Friday/Cyber Monday levels of Traffic, nearly double the average daily traffic levels.
eCommerce is not slowing down
Based on the rate of growth, Jean-Michel is expecting traffic to reach double daily levels, surpassing Black Friday levels.
If this tells us one thing, it’s that eCommerce is not slowing down, but growing at an exceptional rate.
