Data review: eCommerce technologies of big web shops in Finland 2020

2020-11-02

This year our eCommerce data review consists of 299 web shops. The criteria were the same as last years: The annual turnover of the company behind the web shop must exceed one million euros. Also, the selection must be reasonably large. Selling just gift cards is not enough.

This time participants were mainly consultants and vendors (eg. Magnolia, Oracle, Onion.net), only Dan Jackson from London University College representing a customer with timely CMS challenges.
