MALTA / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2019 / The global ecommerce market is currently estimated to be worth over $2.8 trillion and is currently projected to reach $4.9 trillion by 2021. Large e-commerce goers like Amazon.com have been industry leaders when it comes to large portions of online sales. However, it is business goers and online ventures that are beginning to capitalize on this multi trillion dollar market.
Getting into the e-commerce industry requires a big bet on the platforms powering it. Through the powerhouses like Shopify, Etsy and Paypal, and through the recent exciting newcomers like Krepling and Brex. Krepling’s recent market entry has challenged the idea of online retail in an attempt to open up the playing field by offering its services to businesses, bloggers, online course sellers and idealists alike to begin selling their products and services online whilst providing quality user service to ensure business success. Brex is also capitalizing on this potential growth in the number of millennial based startups by offering a credit card to tech based startups.
With everyone trying to invest in this popular market, joining the trend might even be a more long-term solution with the large number of current e-commerce friendly platforms out there. Common grounds like Ebay are always a ‘go to’ arena for easy cherry picking but are arguably short term solutions for a profitable ecommerce operating venture. Betting on this market has become a challenging task with leading retailers reporting huge earnings coming into 2019’s second quarter. With more quarterly earnings due on the horizon, experts are analysing potential pockets for investment and entry for businesses into the ecommerce industry, yet it’s not through corporations like Amazon that accurately provide a genuine insight into this vastly growing market.
Viable traders like Brex and Krepling and two of the most public seeking competitors to opt for, whether its more affordable price ranges or highly innovative ideas, e-commerce shakers are bound to turn heads upon market entry.
Krepling CEO Liam JE Gerada, said that investing in retail is only a small portion of the potential e-commerce has to offer. "The future of retail is online. It may be a consumer driven industry but I think this is one of the few things we can say for certain," says Krepling CEO Liam JE Gerada. "Ecommere will be everywhere we look. Anyone with an idea will need to be able to sell it online."
It is easy to view a newcomer like Krepling looking to further enable the industry designed to shake up the economy. Companies like Shopify have been trying to do it for fifteen years, only seeing a breakthrough in 2010.
Ecommerce is having a globally renowned impact on the US and foreign economies, and with every corporate investor and publicly traded business looking to squeeze what they can from the market, knowing how to get into it and where to invest is vital.
