The Ecommerce News Roundup – 12 April 2021

We’ve reached what feels like a very long awaited milestone as pub gardens, non-essential shops and gyms finally reopened yesterday.

Furthermore, the Transport Secretary, Grant Shappa, announced last week that we could start thinking about booking our holiday’s – so if you’re up for a bit of sun, sand and sangria, it looks like your luck may well be in this year, albeit with necessary restrictions & rules in place!

On top of that Rishi Sunak has declared that the stamp duty holiday has officially been extended for another three months, up until 30th June, which should put a spring in the step of the UK housing market.

If that wasn’t enough, here’s this week’s cut of ecommerce & industry news for you to enjoy.
