What's On

As a result of post-Covid 19 shifts in consumer habits as well as the accelerated pace of digitalisation, the global payment and e-commerce landscape in 2020 has been marked by an unprecedented growth in cashless transactions and a sizable increase of brick-and-mortar businesses expanding into the digital market.

According to an August report by Forbes, e-commerce sales in the United States alone is projected to reach US$709.78 billion this year - a significant jump from the US$601.65 billion which was recorded in 2019.

Join this webinar, where Tim Lee, Founder and CEO of QFPay and Frankie Ng, Hong Kong & Taiwan Lead at Shopify will discuss post-Covid 19 e-commerce and digital payments trends in Hong Kong and beyond, as well as their significance for businesses. They will also explore the innovative technologies and creative strategies which have driven the growth of successful businesses powered by online tools and platforms, and share tips on how companies can get started as well as stand out in an increasingly competitive e-commerce space.
