There is no doubt about it, the world has seen tremendous change in the last couple of years. a global pandemic has changed the way we live, work, and create, and the business scene has been changed, probably forever. E-commerce has gotten its needed boost and is now more popular than ever. 

E-commerce is the buying and selling of goods over the internet. It has been popular for many years now and has been made very accessible for all. Huge online stores like Amazon, eBay, and Etsy have changed the way we’re shopping online, and many other businesses are following their footsteps.

During the pandemic, most stores faced difficulties with lockdown, and with no longer being able to carry out regular opening hours. This made it a necessity to find other solutions in order to survive in the business world. 

Thanks to technology and smart online business solutions, many saw the possibilities online and were able to run their business here. Sites such as help millions of companies online, not only to sell, but to stay in touch with customers, and to carry out services.

A change that is here to stay

After about two years we are finally seeing the world getting back to normal, and we can carry out all our pre-pandemic activities. Now we can meet, work and go to school physically, shop at in-person stores, and travel. While most of us are eager and thrilled to see the switch back to reality, the E-commerce business is showing some other signs. 

Many of the businesses that had to move to an online solution at the beginning of the pandemic are witnessing more success than ever and are now understanding that they have implemented changes that are here to stay. The pandemic is said to have accelerated the shift towards online shopping by two years.  

This has been a huge change, as Israel previously has moved in a slower manner when it comes to adapting to E-commerce. This is partly because people in Israel prefer to visit physical stores to feel the goods they are purchasing, and due to unreliable post-service. It was simply too complicated and foreign. However, this has changed in the days of covid, and E-commerce is now growing rapidly.
