Despite its increasingly diversified business, Amazon.com remains an eCommerce company at its core – and a highly successful one. According to estimates from Statista’s ecommerceDB
, a database covering more than 6,000 online stores worldwide, Amazon is by far the largest online shopping destination in the U.S. with net sales (excl. those by third party sellers) amounting to $52.8 billion in 2017.
As our chart illustrates, no company comes even close to matching Amazon’s footprint in the U.S. eCommerce landscape. Second-placed Walmart sold $14 billion worth of merchandise online last year, which is less than a third of Amazon’s haul.
