It took a while for technology to take a hold but it is now estimated that ecommerce has now become the largest retail environment in sales growth worldwide.
The use of computers, Mobile devices, iphones and tablet devices has literally exploded worldwide in the past few years and it is estimated that in Ireland by the end of 2013 at least 75% of the Irish population will be expected to own a smartphone such as an iphone or android and nearly 55% expected to own a tablet device. This coupled with the fact that internet sales worldwide have also exploded with many online retailers seeing up to a 30% – 50% increase on their online sales against those in previous years proves that it makes commercial sense to make your product or even service available for online purchase. More and more potential consumers are browsing the worldwide web for products and services from the comfort of their home or office and it makes sense that if your product or website is available online to these potential consumers through a well designed and easy to use e-commerce website your business can become succesful in online trading.
