    On this front - I found this Benedict Evans chart pretty eye opening for both ecommerce's step change in share (excl grocery in UK, ecommerce now 40% of retail sales!) as well as the considerable "remaining runway" it still theoretically has)

    I've seen some news article about Shopify now becoming a serious competitor to Amazon. But they are actually both very similar and same merchants are both on Shopify and Amazon.

    Big downside of Amazon is that individual advertising of your own products doesn't make sense on Amazon. If customers click on your paid ad and come to your page on Amazon, the first next thing will be them going to check competitor's prices. So, a shop has much less opportunity to distinguish itself from competition. Amazon is all about the race to the bottom.

    Shopify is much better for merchants, because one can ad so much more value and one has more control over the special deals, not to mention data etc.

    Thanks for sharing, Enzo.
    Interesting: Main reasons for cart abandonment are shipping-related.
