The Ecommerce News Roundup – 21 December 2020

There really is still a lot of good news out there! ‘Adapt, improvise and overcome’ is one of many useful aphorisms from the mental toolkit of the Royal Marines (one of the others was ‘grab, twist and remove’…!)

Please remember that despite the fact you are now going to be spending Christmas in the same place you now call the office; you need to step away from that laptop!

Have a wonderful Christmas, however you’re spending it…
