The coronavirus pandemic changed how people purchase products and services, transforming online commerce and forcing businesses to rely on the internet, rather than relying on their physical stores alone. The United Kingdom alone has more than 850.000 e-commerce sites, with demand having increased by almost fifty-five per cent in 2022. There was a 211% increase in e-commerce websites in 2021.
