Online retail is back on the rise!

According to a recent eMarketer article, the prediction is that this year (2010) ecommerce “will climb to more than $152 billion, up 12.7% year over year”. In addition, according to the US Census Bureau online sales grew by 14.6% in Q4 2009 (over the previous year’s sales), which means a positive trend is finally under way.

These gains, of course are reflective of the overall state of the economy, which is starting to pick up, as well as peoples’ desire to start purchasing again.
