Let’s talk about holiday E-commerce. There are only 47 days until Christmas and that means its time to kick your E-commerce plan into high gear. Especially if you have a healthy 4th Qtr number to hit. 
Speaking of numbers did you know that almost 33% of online purchases are returned vs 9 % for traditional purchases? Just think of the impact on the cost of goods sold. I was also surprised to learn that the biggest shopping day of the year is on singles day - 11/11. Last, but certainly not least, the forecast for online holiday sales is $107B.
That’s lot of opportunity and we have some articles to help you cash in. Good luck and we’ll see you next week.
