20 Ways Canadian Online Retailers Can Win Back-To-School Sales ©

The 2017 back-to-school shopping season is poised to be one of the most successful of recent years for Canadian eCommerce. Canadians are spending more online in Canada and using the Internet as a tool for comparison shopping. With the low loonie, you may even bring in some American back-to-school shoppers. eCommerce brings the World to our doorstep and the low Canadian dollar invites them in.

“While overall Canadian spending on back to school is down (in 2015), the lower loonie is likely to lead to more of that spending remaining in Canada and more U.S. visitors are arriving as well, which could provide some offsetting sales boost for retailers,” said Doug Porter, Chief Economist, BMO Financial Group.

According to a Bank of Montreal report, 16% of respondents said they’ll shop more online for back-to-school items. For more information and statistics, please read The State of eCommerce in Canada, by the Numbers.
