What is an online retail business worth today?

An exclusive Internet Retailer analysis of 553 privately held Top 1000 e-retailers

Internet Retailer, which has been estimating the online sales of top North American retailers since 2003, now for the first time estimates* the value of privately held e-retailers in the Top 1000. (*only available via our Custom Research Department)

For owners of retail businesses, they provide tips on how an entrepreneur can build value in an online retail business and how to prepare for a sale. For investors, they offer guidance on how the value of e-retail businesses has changed in recent years and the qualities of e-retail businesses likely to produce growth and profit in the future. See the table of contents to get a better understanding of what is included in the report.
