0 min read

A lot of information out on the web recently has touched on the robust state of eCommerce in Canada -- but, the majority of Canadian businesses are still not online.

Virtual Logistics recently put together an infographic with side-by-side statistics outlining what shoppers are spending their money on and what Canadian businesses are doing -- or not doing -- to earn a consumer’s buck. As it outlines, Canadian’s are spending money online, but not with Canadian businesses. They are putting their money towards multinationals like Amazon, Costco, and Walmart. Unfortunately, Canadian businesses are doing very little to tackle this. They are not mobile-friendly and a small majority have an online presence. This infographic is a great wake up call to those retailers, policy makers, and buyers in Canada.
