Start Selling Online With an eCommerce Website Design
Over the course of 2020 UK consumers found themselves having to change their shopping habits. As High Streets closed down, shopping moved online. The shift was dramatic. In Feb 2020 20.5% of retail sales took place online. By the end of the first lockdown that was up to 31.4%. The forecast for Spring 2021 is 34.7%. And the demand we’re seeing for eCommerce website design at OYM this year would certainly support these figures.
The question now is whether these new online shopping habits will stick once town centres begin to return to normal. Retail Analyst Richard Lim thinks they probably will:
“Sections of society are being forced to go on a customer journey they wouldn’t otherwise have embarked on. People who couldn’t be bothered to try online shopping are getting past the initial friction of setting up an online account and inputting their payment details.”
