Top American E-Commerce Stores as of 2014

Typically when we talk about e-commerce, we mean businesses that happen right on the web. In the U.S., e-commerce sales are growing about 10% a year topped by world-famous American sites like Amazon and eBay. Most of the bulk of their sales generally come from mobile gadgets which started to boom in 2009. According to CPCStrategy.com, in 2012 there were a total of $218 billion e-commerce sales for overall products category (gadgets, clothes, electronics, etc.). In 2013 it was $240 Billion, 2014 – 259 Billion and it is assumed that by 2015 around $279 Billion will be earned by the leading American e-commerce stores. The data above was preceded by American buyers who have purchased products right from American-owned website stores and statistically their numbers grow every year. Overall, in 2012 data shows 184 million buyers, 2013 – 189 million, 2014 – 195 million and there is an assurance that by 2015 – more than 201 million Americans will be buying more products as new and better products are on the way. The ages of the consumers also greatly vary when it comes to dealing with online purchasing over the years. The younger group whose ages range from 18-30 makes up to 54% of the sales while those with age bracket of 31- 44 takes a large part with 68% and the oldest bracket 66 and above makes up to 48%. What we are referring here are actually the American consumers but if we will discuss worldwide purchasing, we could be talking in billions of dollars of profits a year that will be raked in by American-owned e-retail stores....
