Amazon Gobbling Up More US Online Sales

E-commerce sales by Amazon are forecast to grow by about 30 percent to almost $200 billion dollars this year in the United States.

That would give the giant about 43 percent of total e-sales, said retail research firm eMarketer.

Amazon now accounts for close to 44 cents out of every e-sale in America compared with 38 cents in 2016.

Meanwhile, eMarketer predicts e-commerce sales will grow by 16 percent to about $453 billion by the end of 2017.
