It’s easy to start an eCommerce website, but it’s most assuredly not simple to create a financially successful online store. At Drupal Partners, our Drupal eCommerce development team knows what it takes to create and grow an eCommerce website. And that success is built on Drupal Commerce.

eCommerce Growth & Predictions

As an industry, eCommerce is booming. The first eCommerce site was launched in 1992 – Years later, there are over 24 million online stores. It’s projected that online sales will increase by up to 45% in 2016, reaching a total of $327 billion in revenue. And with the aging of Millennials and Post-Millennials, this number is going grow at a blinding pace.

And one of the big drivers of this eCommerce growth: Open source eCommerce platforms like Drupal Commerce.
