Why we should all embrace E-Commerce
December 8th, 2011
You may have read recently where Irish On-Line Purchases from now until Christmas are expected to reach €257 million. On Monday the 28th of November 82% of purchases in Ireland were made on-line - an incredible statistic. If we look closer and analyse this figure it becomes more remarkable.
Only 61% of Irish indigenous businesses have a website and only 21% of these companies trade online (e-commerce). This means that roughly 1 in 8 Irish businesses sell online. So the majority of the money that is spent on-line by Irish consumers is leaving these shores and with it, many Irish Jobs.
