10 Bold Predictions on the Future of Ecommerce Unveiled by TrueShip

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 06, 2016) - TrueShip ( -- the leading provider of ecommerce shipping software (ReadyShipper) and automated returns management solutions (ReadyReturns) -- has just released their newest guide entailing 10 bold predictions for the future of ecommerce in 2016 and beyond.

As retailers look ahead to a brand new year, one that's been shaped by the statistics of year's prior, ecommerce is about to undergo some rapid changes that help reshape this constantly evolving industry.

At the top of the list is the large online marketplace, Amazon, and its overtaking of Walmart as the most valuable retailer. Piggyback this with the fact that Amazon Prime Air is priming to launch its drone delivery service in select major U.S. cities, and you have the trappings for an already interesting first quarter.

Among the 10 predictions covered by TrueShip for the future of ecommerce is the growth rate. Ecommerce currently represents 7.4% of retail in the U.S., but is expected to surpass 10% in just a few years. Meanwhile, more marketers are looking to Facebook to brand videos rather than YouTube, and emotionally driven online shopping is taking center stage.

These and many more predictions of the future of ecommerce are revealed in TrueShip's comprehensive breakdown: The Future Of Ecommerce: 10 Predictions For 2016.
