Custora Logo 2014Marketing analytics firm Custora says US e-commerce sales were up eight percent this January over January 2013.

While combined offline and online transactions were down 0.4 percent last month compared to a year ago, Custora claims January was a strong month for e-commerce, with a 6 percent increase in traffic to e-commerce stores.

Based on e-commerce transactions from over 100 retailers and 70 million shoppers, Custora’s data also revealed a slight increase in the average conversion rate last month, holding at 2.2 percent compared to 2.1 percent in January 2013.
