Love the infographics, very informative but easy to understand as well. I'm not surprised about how social media influences people's online purchases, as I'm more likely to buy a holiday after reading reviews, or more likely to want a product after a blogger has recommended it.

Reading this blog made me wonder if anyone has come across any interesting e-commerce YouTube videos?

This is awesome.

Are there similar insights about e-commerce in Africa only?

97% of the UK and German population have shopped online?

Really?

And 95% of China's population have shopped online too?

Hmm...

I think the data once you can work it out is really interesting. I think the graphics are poor because most of them make you struggle to work out the main take aways.

Some of these are great, but a few have quite obvious errors. Anyone using these to back up their business case should approach with caution. Otherwise, a good selection.

Biggest take-out from this was the change in conversion from lower page load speeds.

This is a great resource. This would be an awesome tool if it was converted to a B2B measurement guide. Thanks for posting.

I second David Bell and his observation about some of the stats in the Xemion graphic. 97% of UK population has shopped online? 95% of China population has shopped online? Really?

The first graphic also needs qualification in the headline. "Percentage of people who have shopped online by area" is just wrong. Should be "Percentage of people by area, who are online and have shopped online."

Maybe I'm being picky but these little nuggets will always be plucked out of graphics like these and will self-replicate.

These are wicked. Think my favourite is "savvy shoppers do it online" Just shared on my Facebook!

Great collection Graham,
Most of these talk about numbers. I once created an infographic for one of my project, which talked about the capabilities of various companies to drive ecommerce sector. It specially talks about aggressive verticle integration by companies.

You can take a look at it here
