Introducing The Jumpshot eCommerce 25: The Top U.S. eCommerce Sites

 In Blog

Everybody loves a list… so that’s why we’re excited to announce our list of the top eCommerce sites in the U.S. — The Jumpshot 25.  

We looked at more than 1.5 billion digital transactions in the U.S. so far this year (Q1-3), and our report details who’s up, who’s down, and why.

Amazon Insights

Obviously, Amazon tops the list. Yes, their Q3 earnings were disappointing, at least by their standards.  But Amazon has historically prioritized growth over profits, and this quarter is no different. Last week our CEO, Deren Baker shared this perspective on Amazon’s earnings on Bloomberg TV.  

But consider the data: Amazon’s YTD sales are up 3% YoY.  That translates to 40 million additional transactions — most retailers don’t sell that much in an entire year.

Beyond Amazon: The Big Five

Four retailers join Amazon to round out the “Big Five” that tops our list –  eBay, Walmart, Etsy, and Target. Only eBay is declining significantly, as the others target distinct markets they can own with minimal competition from the others.

It also details the growth of digital darlings (like Chewy, Wayfair, and Aliexpress), as well as traditional retailers who are mastering omnichannel (such as Home Depot, Costco, and Kohl’s).  And of course, there are lessons to be learned from the struggling retailers in danger of falling off the list.
