J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
The Internet retailer sells more stuff online than its 12 biggest competitors combined
Online shopping still only makes up a minority of total retails sales — well over 90 percent of them happen in stores, a Forrester analyst told The New York Times last December. But, the trend is growing rapidly — total E-commerce spending increased 15 percent in 2012, according to ComScore data from February 2013 — and the majority of that growth comes from Amazon. "Its 30% increase in North American sales in the second quarter outstripped the overall e-commerce market and some competitors as well," notes the Journal.
