Is your ecommerce ready for Christmas?

Despite the much needed return of the High Street. The legacy of covid is still patently evident in low footfall figures. Since lockdown has eased and the High Street has started to re-open, footfall is still low and it’s predicted that many people will continue to purchase online till Christmas (1). With this in mind it’s more important now than ever that your company can provide a swift and smooth running ecommerce service.
