What Is the Future of Ecommerce in 2018 and Beyond?

On July 5, 2017, retail mega-giant Amazon turned 23 years old.

Already commanding 37% of the ecommerce market, latest projections — compiled by Sellbrite — estimate the conglomerate will be responsible for half of all online sales within three years.

In light of those numbers, it’s easy to forget that — in the grand scheme of the commerce universe — both ecommerce and Amazon are still in their infancy. (As Jeff Bezos likes to say, it’s always “Day 1” at his company.)

Despite futuristic advances like two-hour delivery and a new drone service, long-term success starts with knowing the fundamental market opportunities and potential points of friction.
