According to the U.S. Census Bureau, since 2009, Americans have increased their online spending by 100 billion dollars.
According to a 2018 NPR/Marist poll, 69% of Americans shopped online during the year, and 43% regularly shop online.
That is a lot of money spent on shopping, and with the advent of Covid-19, the percentage of people regularly shopping online has dramatically increased.
