Ede, 29 October 2020 - B2b e-commerce is on the rise; the percentage of the employed labor force that placed or approved a business online order in the past twelve months grew by nine percentage points to 48% compared to last year.

Millions of Europeans now have their own webshop. That is not surprising, because with tools such as WooCommerce, setting up a professional webshop is actually accessible to almost everyone, as long as you are willing to invest time and energy.

This is evident from the new Sustainability Monitor for the e-commerce sector of Thuiswinkel.org, which was carried out by StakeholderWatch.

Amsterdam, September 22, 2020 - The relaxation of the measures to get the coronavirus under control and the reopening of physical stores has had little effect on the online shopping behavior of consumers in Europe. This is evident from research by Adobe into the trends in the field of online shopping during and after the (intelligent) lockdown among more than 3000 * Europeans. 59 percent of those surveyed regularly shopped online during the lockdown. This is almost the same as the 60 percent who frequently make an online purchase after the relaxation of the measures.
