I bet that if you could peer into your crystal ball and take a peek at the future of Canadian Ecommerce, you would do it in a heartbeat.
But looking into that crystal ball wouldn’t help the present issues you and your business are facing.
The fact of the matter is that Canadian ecommerce is falling further and further behind our fellow first world counterparts, and Canadian businesses are doing little to prevent Canada from sliding even further down the competitive scale. Some of these negatives can be spun into positives; for example, the fact that we are behind other, more competitive markets gives Canada a ‘lag time’ to fully understand and adopt omni-channel best practices. But some of the trends for 2015 are predicting a dismal future for Canadian ecommerce – unless we take note and start changing things now.
