Americans Bought So Much Stuff Online Last Year, It Was Basically Another Holiday Season

2022 may be the first-ever trillion-dollar year in U.S. ecommerce


U.S. consumers have shelled out an extra $183 billion online—equivalent to an entire holiday shopping season—during the Covid-19 pandemic so far.

That’s according to Adobe’s Digital Economy Index, which found ecommerce sales hit $844 billion from March 2020 to February 2021. “That’s roughly the size of the entire Dutch economy right there, just in online commerce,” said Taylor Schreiner, director of Adobe Digital Insights.

In 2020, the total figure was $813 billion, which is an increase of 42% over 2019.
