2018 E-Commerce Technology Guide

What online retailers should know about the latest digital technologies for increasing sales and profits

For most online retailers, picking the right technology partner can be daunting. From email marketing software to fulfillment services, there are often dozens of companies that can help.

For merchants looking to add a new technology to their site, or those looking to switch online marketing firms, how do they know where to start? What should they be paying? What are some key questions they should be asking any potential partner?

Answers to those questions, and many more, are what readers will find in the Internet Retailer 2018 Guide to E-Commerce Technology. For the first time, the Internet Retailer research team has summarized the key developments across 31 e-commerce technology and service categories including e-commerce platforms, order management and website testing/optimization. Each summary includes data on:

  • Standard pricing for the service
  • Contract terms
  • Key questions to ask vendors
  • The number of companies to choose from
  • A link to contact information for those companies

The 95-page PDF report also includes an infographic summarizing the results of an exclusive survey of Top 1000 online retailers about their 2018 technology spending plans.
