Since last Sunday, March 15, shops are facing this situation:
“Opening of retail premises and retail outlets” is suspended, with the exception of a limited list related to primary necessities. In addition, any other activity that in the opinion of the competent authority may show a risk of contagion is suspended.
A dramatic situation for an industry that is already suffering from a lack of innovation with the prospect of unstoppable growth in platforms like Amazon, so as a consumer, the buying decision should be taken consciously, to the image of the world we want tomorrow.
Under these circumstances, many businesses, despite having their doors closed, continue to operate online through e-commerce. From Bit Foundation we have been praising the benefits of e-commerce since 2013 with the first face-to-face courses, and the creation of the first ecommerce guide of 2013 and its update in 2018.
Guia balear de comerç electrònic, (2018).
Once again we want to show our support to small businesses and remind them the tools available for them as well as our directory of technology companies in the Balearics that are still operating at the moment. These companies can advise and help you set up an e-commerce, now more important than ever.
