Highlights
Online shopping was solid but not robust during the holidays based on fourth-quarter e-commerce sales which did, however, rise to $102.7 billion or 1.9 percent higher compared to the prior quarter. But as a percentage of total retail sales, e-commerce slipped to 8.3 percent from the third-quarter's 8.4 percent.

Definition
E-commerce sales are sales of goods and services where an order is placed by the buyer or price and terms of sale are negotiated over the Internet, an extranet, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) network, or other online system. Payment may or may not be made online.  Why Investors Care
