Ecommerce & Digital News Weekly - 14 Nov 2023

370 x 93 Digital & ecommerce newsletter

After a summer (and early Autumn!) break we're back with more good news from the front-line of ecommerce.  It's the high point of activity for the retail year and as Patrick says in our fun and possibly self-indulgent podcast - the next couple of months will be an interesting litmus test of whether we are through the worst of the surge and counter-surge of covid and post-covid economics.

On the macro-economic front, US inflation is dropping faster than expected, UK mortgage rates are coming down and wages are growing at 7%. Good luck to you all through the Black Friday period!

Best wishes,

James & Patrick
