How has the coronavirus pandemic affected e-commerce? It's complicated. Even as more people shop online from the safety of home, some e-commerce categories are struggling. For some of them, the challenge is near-overwhelming demand. For others, sales have sharply dropped.
The e-commerce industry has been impacted on both demand side as well as supply side. Virus related products such as soap, sanitizes, mask, tissue and others has witnessed an enormous rise in demand. Due to the imposed of certain limitation, some companies are not able to respond the changes or adapt it quickly.

The respective players have to work in close collaboration with the local authorities as well as the governments so as to run their business efficiently by offering in need with helping hand.
