With a population of over 340 million Worldine’s solution has been designed to meet the demands of the strategically critical US e-commerce market, which itself is likely to exceed $1.4 trillion in sales in 2027 (source: Statista).

According to Statista, over 79.3% of the US population are digital buyers, while 46% of online purchases are made by smartphone. Although cards and digital wallets remain the most popular online payment methods, mobile payments are also increasingly popular, and mobile commerce now represents nearly half of all e-commerce transactions across North America.

In particular, the United States plays a pivotal role in the global e-commerce, shaping trends and setting benchmarks for other countries to follow. It is a dynamic force driven by technological advancements, innovation, and a population well-versed in technology, all backed by a resilient digital infrastructure. This has led to an e-commerce market in the U.S. that keeps growing. This vast and diverse market presents great opportunities for businesses. Its easy access to data and robust logistics network make it an efficient machine for e-commerce and a highly desirable, far-expanding opportunity for online businesses. Additionally, American sellers are highly preferred in the country, which further solidifies its dominance in mobile e-commerce and digital commerce.
