When English inventor Michael Aldrich created the notion of electronic shopping in 1979 we should have assumed it would be the market-changer and breakthrough discovery that would change shopping for decades to come.

Now, almost four decades later, e-commerce is a vital part of our everyday lives. Since it’s critical for business as well, our team gathered around an amicable project called Subscriptionly, where we went the extra mile and researched the web for future e-commerce trends. All researched data is summarized in the infographic below.

Digital commerce has grown from simply buying something online to a whole set of technology-based interactions for exchanging goods and services. Before you dig into the infographic, let’s discuss e-commerce and its importance further.

We can all relate to this meme, right? Digital commerce’s primary goal is (and has always been) to improve the service people get. In that sense, getting the delivered goods faster is often as important as the quality of the products.

For instance, 79% of US customers would accept drone delivery if their package could find its way to their homes within an hour. 73% of them even said they would pay up to $10 for drone delivery. This data shows us that every technological breakthrough means a lot to the e-commerce industry.

E-commerce keeps on growing, and it doesn’t seem like it will stop. Although the growth is expected to decrease in the following years, the e-commerce innovations race is one you can’t afford to miss.

Wondering how you can keep up with the digital commerce giants? Well, just because someone’s bigger than you doesn’t mean you should wave the white flag. Even if you don’t have the knowledge and experience necessary, there are systems like CS-Cart that can help you start the process and set up your e-commerce store.

As you can see, the e-commerce train is no longer at the railway station, but it still hasn’t reached full speed. If you arm yourself with knowledge from the infographic below and similar ones you find online, you might still catch it, get onboard, and arrive where all e-commerce stores want to be: among the giants in the digital commerce business.
