E-Commerce More Competitive in the U.S. Than a Year Ago | SmallBusinessNewz

The top retailers account for less of the overall spending
Good news for small e-commerce businesses: a new report from comScore finds that the top 25 online retailers account for a smaller percentage of total online sales than they did a year ago. This is U.S. data.
Are your e-commerce sales up? Let us know in the comments.
The firm has put out its Q2 U.S. Retail E-Commerce Spending report.
More good news for those selling good online: more people are buying online.
“The second quarter of 2011 saw a continuation of this year’s solid double-digit growth trends in online spending, well ahead of the rate of growth in consumers’ overall spending,” said comScore chairman Gian Fulgoni."
