This growth was in line with the eCommerce industry that, as a whole, saw a 12% increase in eCommerce revenue during the first quarter of 2011 over the same period a year ago, according to comScore Inc. The average SiteLINK store's growth was fueled by an impressive 11% increase in orders per day, as well as a continuing uptick in average order size throughout the first quarter of 2011.
"SiteLINK eCommerce merchants experienced an impressive holiday season that was able to jump start the strong eCommerce growth for the first quarter of 2011.
