Infographic: What are the top online retail categories?

E-commerce platform Bigcommerce has revealed the top retail categories that are seeing strong online sales growth.


It’s found jewellery and accessories stores are growing fast, with Bigcommerce stores in this category seeing revenues jump 31% last year.


The automotive sector is also booming, with revenue surging 89% in 2013.


But in a warning for those considering a store in books, movies and music, they’ve seen revenue fall by 14% as iTunes, Amazon and Netflix continue to dominate the space.


Bigcommerce has produced an infographic that illustrates where the growth in online retail is happening, and where smaller players are beating the established retail giants.
