E106: Biggest Ecommerce News of 2017

Monday, December 18th, 2017 in Podcast

I just did a podcast about my 2017 biggest struggles in our last episode and today I will cover the biggest news to ever explode in the ecommerce world this year. It definitely seems like 2017 flew us by but not without leaving news bombs that left a lot of people in ecommerce amused, worried, hopeful and wondering what’s going to happen next.

We compiled a list of the biggest news in ecommerce this year, ranging from the Bitcoin explosion to the ever-so-perplexing sales tax. The items on this list are not written in any particular order. Listen to the podcast for my discussion of each.

  1. Amazon acquiring Whole Foods
  2. Massive Single’s Day sales
  3. Record-breaking Cyber Monday sales
  4. Soaring Bitcoin price
  5. Shopify once got accused as a “get-rich-quick” scheme
  6. Sales tax amnesty
  7. Marketplace tax collection in Washington
  8. Factory crackdowns in China
  9. Amazon’s quest for HQ2
  10. Amazon and Google’s feud
  11. Launching of Amazon Australia
  12. Controversial Amazon Key
  13. Net Neutrality
  14. Walmart buying Jet.com
