That $105 billion breaks down to around $805 per person, and represents 16.7% of the $630 billion that will be spent in November and December by American shoppers.

    Magento is sold by Ebay – Set for huge growth.

    In a truly massive – both in terms of meaning and dollar value – transaction, online and e-commerce heavyweight eBay Inc. sold its eBay Enterprise division for $925 million to a consortium partnership between equity firms Permira and Sterling Partners. This sale comes fast on the heels of a January split between eBay and Paypal. Technically speaking, international private equity firm Permira and growth-oriented private equity firm Sterling Partners joined forces to create a consortium – which consists of Sterling Partners, Longview Asset Management, the Innotrac Corporation and assorted companies owned by the Permira funds. This consortium then purchased eBay Enterprise for the massive $925 million total.

  9. Are You Ready For The Omni-Channel Consumer?

    Are You Ready For The Omni-Channel Consumer?

    It sounds almost…ominous. Omni-channel. But the reality of the word – and the deep meaning that lies behind it – is quite the opposite of ominous. If anything else, it may be an omen. An omen for bigger and better things to come for your business. Simply put, the “omni-channel consumer” is the driving force who stands to shape the very future of e-commerce. He and she will likely have an awful lot to say about the next step in brick-and-mortar businesses too. That’s because the omni-channel consumer shops, browses and buys in both the online (e-commerce) and physical retail (in-store) spaces. Even that time-honored, old-school brand Macy’s has been observed recently referring to itself as “an omni-channel retail organization operating stores and websites.”

    E-commerce: Merchandising Matters

    What’s an online merchandiser? In the ever-expanding world of e-commerce, it’s one of the most sought-after positions today. And it’s absolutely critical to the success of any e-commerce operation or store. But despite the rise in this role and its importance, many e-commerce operations remain under-staffed – or even un-staffed – when it comes to this vital position. In the most traditional sense of the term, merchandising has mostly been about the product in the shelf – and making sure it stays stocked and visible. Put simply, it has to do with what’s available for purchase inside the store.
