How Corona Affected E-Commerce?

Due to the corana virus spreading from China to the whole world, anyone except people have compulsory job stay their homes. If necessary, people don't go out from homes. While some of them are in despair, some of them look positively against this situation.

While the reason for negative thoughts is the uncertain future, the reason for positive thoughts is the belief that the world will be a better place.

Objectively, we think that this process will change most habits. The most important of these is the consumption habit. All pessimistic or optimistic people continue to consume to continue their lives, and their mood affects their consumption habits. While some people continue to make pasta stocks with a fear of famine, a group turns to games and books for self-improvement and enjoyment at home.

All of these consumption types all come together in one common point: Online Shopping!

In the quarantine period, people who wanted to protect themselves and their living standards started to shop on e-commerce sites, and this will affect the economic order as well as habits in the long run.
