27 Apr The Ecommerce News Roundup – 27 April 2021
Happy Birthday to Us!
Can you believe it’s a year since we started sharing good news with you?
Our intention was always (and will continue to be) to spread a little cheer and show that not everything is ‘doom and gloom’ (despite what the mainstream media often wants us to think).
There is no doubt that this past year has been tough – but equally it has been an exciting ride of change and progress, with ecommerce & digital leading the charge.
So, to those of you who are on this Good News journey with us…
And of course, below is the best ecommerce & digital news from the past week to enjoy!
