    In a tough economy, e-commerce shows its strength with a 17.5% Q2 rise in web sales
    Saw this posted by Brad Crooks (Jeannine's hubby) and thought it pointed up a competitive advantage for affiliates.

    While April-through-June total e-commerce and retail sales were up from a year ago, some retailers are likely to carefully watch their expenses and inventory levels given the recent swings in the stock market and continued economic uncertainty.
    If merchants under purchase it give affiliates the ability to show products that are in-stock with lesser known merchants in Q4. This gives datafeeders on top of their game a foot up with up-to-date api feeds. Paid Search affiliates the ability to spot out-of-stock products before merchants can react. Social affiliates who monitor the pulse of the consumer can feed the need.

    E-commerce has seemed to be out performing B&M retail for several years now (just my personal observation). E-commerce companies seem to be making more sales, hiring more people, and accounting for more startups than their offline counterparts. I expect that to continue for some time.

    Here's an interesting article:

    45% of consumers prefer shopping for clothes online | Econsultancy

    Almost half of consumers prefer shopping for fashion online than offline, while 64% consult a fashion retailer's website before making a purchase.

    These stats from a GSI Commerce survey show how important the web has become for fashion shoppers, and how a multichannel approach to retail is vital for clothing brands.
