Despite economic troubles e-commerce is growing fast!

Encouraging figures from IMRG Capegemini e-Retail Sales Index show that online sales are growing rapidly despite a down turn in the economy. According to IMRG online spending in July reached £4.8 bilion, up 11.3% on June's figures.

"It's not difficult to understand why there has been an increase in ecommerce sales," said Dr Stephen Khoo, Director of iPages Ltd. "Consumers are turning to the internet to find deals on products that they want. iPages ecommerce solution is particularly geared to deliver special offers and discount vouchers, with this functionality as standard."

"We can also help businesses to have a successful ecommerce website with very low risk to themselves. Our business ethos is to work with companies, not against them. Very few businesses these days want to part with £20k upfront not knowing if their ecommerce website will deliver. At iPages we design the site and then charge a small monthly fee, dependent on the website's turnover. We have no doubt that the system will deliver, but we see ourselves as partners with our clients helping them to be successful."

"I think that it is probably time for businesses without a good web presence to strongly consider which ecommerce solution is right for them and I am confident enough to know that an iPages ecommerce website is an ideal way of increasing sales".
