With the digital era, online shopping has become a thing, and when it comes to online shopping, Canada is the best country to do that. Even though it is not a big country, its e-commerce market is customer-centric.
Canada mostly consists of American e-commerce countries, even though locals have a chance at experiencing the much lucrative digital space. Internet and e-commerce spaces in Canada are similar to those in the United States, even though it is just a fraction in the US digital population.
Canada is a country that has a lot of wealth and potential, and this, together with the knowledge about online shopping, make it a sophisticated country. When shopping, Canadians use both computers and mobile phones to buy different goods and services from online shops. The market in Canada is quite advanced in technology, so there is a lot of competition for online shopping.
Amazon is the largest e-commerce company in Canada, but that does not mean that the country does not have local stores that can share in the market. Stores such as Canadian Tire and Hudson’s Bay take a small share in the market. Etsy is a new innovative store that has been able to penetrate the market both locally and globally.
Below are the leading e-commerce platforms, as well as their monthly traffic of 2020.
