The Women’s Domain : Shaping the Future of eCommerce


On International Women’s Day 2022, 5874 Commerce’s marketing team (consisting solely of women) launched a campaign that aimed to learn from and celebrate women in the eCommerce industry. 


The plan was to understand how women occupy the eCommerce space. What are the obstacles? How can workplaces be more inclusive? What can we do to encourage women to join the industry? 


Through podcasts, interviews, in-person roundtable events and guidance and participation from leading eCommerce partners such as BigCommerce, Akeneo, Adyen, Brightpearl and more, we’ve compiled a whitepaper on everything we’ve learned so far.

  • Discussions around motherhood, imposter syndrome, women’s health, leadership, networking, diversity and STEM
  • How to climb the career ladder and lift others up with you
  • How businesses can become more inclusive and which ones are already doing it right

The Point of No Return – The Retailer’s Guide to Returns

Consumer expectations rocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic. As online sales and impulse purchases increased, so did product returns. They’re not slowing down, either.

This FREE whitepaper includes:

  • Returns policies & the rights of the consumer
  • How the returns process can vary between retailers
  • Returns and the environment
  • Returns and customer retention
  • The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on returns

Featuring merchants such as Boots, Marks & Spencer, Argos and many more. With insights from BigCommerce, Brightpearl, Akeneo and more key ecommerce partners.

Conscious Commerce 2.0 – The Race for Sustainability in Retail

The year 2020 can only be described as an avalanche of change. Covid-19 was rapidly altering the landscape in which we live, shop, socialise and even breathe. With the world struggling to grapple with this new way of living, retail businesses were adapting and evolving to accommodate the needs of consumers and what matters most to them.


During this time, 5874 Commerce undertook an extensive research project to assess the sustainable practices of 100 UK-operating online retailers. Ordering 100 products from 100 different merchants provided great insight into how many businesses, up to that point, had been responding to the climate crisis. 


Now, two years later, 5874 Commerce have revisited the same 100 merchants to complete the experiment once again and assess how such a chaotic period of change has affected how businesses are responding to the social discourse on our environment, and if they have actively made changes to improve their carbon footprint.
