The UK online retail market is now the second biggest in the world (after the US). Online sales will grow by 13% to £77bn this year. There are now an astonishing 230,000 online businesses in the UK, up by a third from last year. British online retailers export more than the rest of the EU’s e-tailers combined. This is according to figures from the IMRG (the UK’s member association for e-tailers).
