The world is starting to feel less wintry and the days no longer feel impossibly long and devoid of sunlight.

It may still be horribly chilly, but the lighter mornings and longer evenings mean spring really is starting to feel closer than ever - and we are looking forward to turning Netflix off and getting back outside for a natural dose of vitamin D.

It's even been suggested that reading our ecommerce & digital newsletter is the best thing you can do to cure the winter blues and to put a spring in your step!

So here it is, just for you.


In 2020, retail e-commerce sales worldwide amounted to 4.28 trillion US dollars and e-retail revenues are projected to grow to 5.4 trillion US dollars in 2022 and $6.34 trillion US dollars by 2024.
