eCommerce continues to show significant growth globally; with sales swiftly approaching the US $ 2 trillion mark. Conversely; Africa only accounts for 2% of these sales, with profitability still eluding a majority of online retailers active on the continent.

The opportunities evidently exist; although clearly defined strategies for tapping into this accelerated growth may elude a number of ecommerce businesses active in Africa.
