We cooperate with industry leaders and together we are looking for future- oriented solutions. This is why, for 6 years, we have been asking eCommerce Managers, Consultants, Retailers, Producers and other decision-makers in eCommerce for their opinion on the most important trends observed in the market. These responses help us prepare the annual eCommerce Trends Report, which is meant to inspire and also help make decisions that translate into tangible business results. This year, we have involved 150 specialists and 6 partner companies, which you will find at the end of the report. We analyzed 70 trends and their impact on the current market situation, as well as the condition of the eCommerce market in the B2C and B2B sectors.
