The US Census Bureau released its latest e-commerce report, showing retail e-commerce sales reached an estimated $105.7 billion in Q1 2017, a 4.1 percent increase over the previous quarter and 14.7 percent year-over-year increase compared to Q1 2016.
The Census Bureau says the $105.7 billion estimate is adjusted for seasonal variation, but not price changes. (The non-adjusted retail e-commerce total for Q1 was 98.1 billion – which is actually down 20 percent from Q4 2016.)
According to the report, e-commerce sales made up 8.5 percent of the total $1.25 billion in retail sales generated in Q1 2017.
