E-tailing industry sales slips in October to December period
E-tailing industry has been growing significantly. However, the last quarter of the 2017 calendar year shows sales were marginally down.
Online retail business or e-tail industry’s sales were lower in the last quarter of 2017. The festive season sales which began in September didn’t seem to interest shoppers’ interest.
In the July to September quarter sales crossed $20 billion. This was also attributed to higher number of shoppers from Tier II+ cities along with robust sales by e-commerce sites like Flipkart and Amazon.
However, despite the higher number of shoppers from the Tier II cities, sales were marginally down in the October to December period.
