eBay, along with other global online marketplaces, has seen a rapid rise in sales during the coronavirus pandemic. Overall, data from the Mastercard Economic Institute shows the growth rate of e-commerce, at which consumers spent about $900 billion more on online purchases in 2020 than in the previous two years.
3.47 billion people made online purchases last year, with $ 665 billion in apparel, footwear and accessories, $ 414 billion in food and apparel, $ 331 billion in home furnishings, and handicrafts and toys – $ 526 billion. Each consumer spent an average of $ 703 on an online purchase.
Every day, many sellers export goods from different countries through e-commerce. For example, on eBay, one of the largest e-commerce platforms (the second largest in the world), the number of people looking for a product reaches about 180 million, the number of sellers is 19 million. And since August 20, in one of the largest online markets, thanks to the Armenian Export Center, Armenian producers are presented in the “one window”. AEC brings together Armenian producers, opening up new export horizons.
