We analyzed the data of 200+ ecommerce retailers with over $25 billion in transaction revenue to answer this question: what are the indicators of breakout ecommerce success?
Our research included companies with less than $1 million in annual revenue to some of the fastest-growing companies in the IR 500. By studying the key metrics of best-in-class companies, we were able to gain insight into how growth patterns differ for companies achieving breakout success.
Here are a few of the highlights we found:

By month six in business, top-performing companies are generating nearly $450k in monthly revenue
Top performing companies have an Average Order Value 36% higher than other companies
