How to Succeed on Amazon Canada [On-Deman Webinar]
Article by: Orca Pacific
Canada is one of the fastest-growing eCommerce markets among all Western countries. According to eMarketer, eCommerce in Canada grew 20.7% in 2020, reaching CA$52.04 billion. That’s equal to roughly 8% of all Canadian retail. The rapid growth was accelerated by a massive shift to online shopping due to physical restrictions associated with COVID-19. The percentage of Canadian consumers who make at least 40% of their purchases online rose to 19% by April 2020, compared to just 8% prior to the pandemic.
Much like the US eCommerce market, Amazon is the dominant eRetailer in Canada with around 135 million monthly visits. Brands that hope to capture the growth of Canada’s eCommerce market must first dominate the Amazon Canada platform.
In this candid conversation, we will explore how data, content, digital media, and operations come together in a strategy built for maximum brand growth. With perspectives from thought leaders across the S4Capital ecosystem, learn about unique opportunities that will give you a competitive edge.
