Since the pandemic, many industries and sectors have struggled, however, digital commerce has seen an upward, successful trend. There has been a shift in small to medium businesses embracing digital tools, technologies and sales channels. Many organizations have adapted to this change by having online stores that not only help them make up for the revenue loss, but also to connect with their audience. According to a study by PayPal Canada, the number of Canadian small businesses selling online has increased nearly 400 per cent in the last five years with the global pandemic being a major catalyst for merchants going digital.
