Empowering Women Through eCommerce
The global pandemic has been extremely hard to navigate the business world given all of its uncertainty. For a long time now, women were having to attend to childcare, schooling, and housework at a disproportionate level. This is why eCommerce options have been a game changer for many.
eCommerce leaders such as eBay have been empowering women to start their businesses and grow their businesses to new heights previously in ways that were previously unattainable.
For example, at the onset of the pandemic, during the first 6 months that COVID-19 rocked the world, the number of eBay enabled businesses in the United States grew by 34%. Accordingly, the sales of these businesses grew by 38%. Additionally, 97% of women’s small businesses were exporting their products, becoming global exporters nearly overnight.
Emerge Woman Magazine is a source of inspiration, providing stories of women who have triumphed over adversity and emerged stronger than ever.
