What’s in the Top 500 Analysis Report?
The retailers ranked in the 2018 Internet Retailer Top 500 accounted for roughly 72% of the 2017 online retail sales in the United States, and thus provide valuable insights into what’s driving this consistent growth in online shopping.

Almost half (238) of the Top 500 retailers increased their web sales in 2017 by more than the 16.0% growth of U.S. online retailing. Among those growing quickly, two groups stand out in particular: big store-based retailers and innovative web-focused startups.
