UK & International Ecommerce News Roundup - 02 August 2021

Filed in:

Sharing good news for website

It's been quite a week.  

Team GB have (so far) won 47 Olympic medals (& counting) and as a nation we're now sitting 5th on the league table. 

We've witnessed sporting heavyweights and debutants win medals and we've seen favourites fall; there's been elation and there's been pain, but what has been most impressive has been watching every athlete take it to the edge of what is possible in their sport.

In fact, when you look at it, it has been a similar story when it comes to how businesses have fared over the past 18 months with behemoths of industry struggling whilst more and more start-ups take on unicorn status. Is there an anecdote about not sitting on your laurels in there somewhere...?

As always, here is this week's pull of ecommerce and digital news.  We'll be on a break for the next two weeks but back at the end of the month.
