The growth of e-commerce since the beginning of the pandemic has been dizzying. With the restrictive measures imposed by the pandemic, purchases that used to be made in person are now largely made through digital channels.  

This has stimulated the arrival of many small entrepreneurs in the digital environment, who saw in e-commerce the possibility to complement their income or even make the new business as their main activity. 

According to the 7th Neotrust Report - Buy & Trust Movement, released at the end of April, 78.5 million purchases were made online in the first three months of this year, which represents a growth of 57.4% when compared to the same period in 2020.
