We found ourselves in a very particular context that changed our routines completely. A pandemic transcended borders and wreaked havoc in countries in all corners of the world, leading us not only to fear and uncertainty, but to a large number of changes in our daily lives.
This virus that we have all heard about (probably several times a day) has a peculiarity that led us to these circumstances: it is extremely contagious . We do not plan, in this article, to delve into scientific details that we do not handle with the corresponding knowledge, but rather we seek to talk about the situation in which we find ourselves beyond said details.
The virus, being so contagious, led several countries to take measures related to avoiding contact, seeking to prevent the situation from becoming more serious. Social isolation, quarantine and all measures of this style entail a great change on a social level, since staying at home without any possibility of going out or seeing other people is not something we are used to.
In addition to this (which may be obvious) this situation implies a great economic impact: although there are people who can work from home, there are also those who work informally and depend on the income they can generate on a daily basis. Taking all these factors into account, it is necessary to say that the situation is, at least to begin to describe it, very difficult to manage.
But how can this be related to the eCommerce industry?
At this time, many businesses are looking for a way to stay on their feet in the face of circumstances. Stores located on premises must close their doors to comply with the measures that are being implemented. For this reason, eCommerce found circumstantial success that derives from the facilities it can offer business owners at this time.
Virtual stores allow us to continue contact with the customer with all the services that this implies: from the presentation of the products to their shipments according to the security measures required by this context. In this way, those people who are faced with the question of how to keep a business running without being able to serve customers directly will have a great answer to consider.
We take this opportunity to request that you please take the necessary care to not put yourself at risk and help the situation improve. We will soon move forward.
