For online retailers, the holidays are a make-it-or-break-it time of year.

If results are good, the entire year is profitable. But if results are bad, it can sour even an otherwise profitable year.

This season, eMarketer projects that US retail sales will increase 5.0% in November and December, up from last year’s growth of 3.4%. This stronger overall retail climate should drive US ecommerce sales up 16.6%, compared with last year’s growth of 15.3%, according to a new eMarketer report, “Holiday Shopping Preview: Ecommerce Grows as Brick-and-Mortar Stores Embrace Digital.” (source)
