The state of e-commerce
Electronic commerce, more often known as e-commerce, continues to grow at a staggering rate. In 2014, worldwide e-commerce sales totaled $1.3 trillion and by the end of 2017, e-commerce sales topped $2.3 trillion dollars. In 2017, U.S. Black Friday e-commerce sales alone amounted to $5.03 billion. With so much money being transferred electronically, many people are concerned about how to protect themselves online while still enjoying the convenience of e-commerce.
