Ecommerce Foundation

The Ecommerce Foundation

Foster global digital trade
The Ecommerce Foundation is an independent non-profit organization, initiated by worldwide national ecommerce associations and online and omnichannel selling companies from industries such as retail, travel & finance. 

Why an Ecommerce Foundation?

Our mission is to foster global digital trade as peace is the natural effect of trade. By facilitating digital commerce we hope to make the world a slightly better place.

How does the Foundation help?

We facilitate the development of practical knowledge, insights and services for which individual institutions, retail and ecommerce associations and B2C selling companies do not have the (financial) resources and/or capabilities. By combining collective goals and efforts, the Ecommerce Foundation is able to realize projects that could not have been realized on an individual basis.

What does the Ecommerce Foundation do?

The Ecommerce Foundation is developing and offering several services such as the EcommerceWiki, National Ecommerce Reports, and Safe.Shop in order to foster global digital trade.

VP Strategy and Insights

I have worked with the ​Ecommerce Foundation on several custom reports. They are great collaborators and produce high-quality work. They are clearly retail experts who provide a unique perspective on trends and best practices in our ever-changing industry. I can confidently recommend them as a research partner. 
Jorij Abraham made a fantastic presentation and impression to the audience and in particular the European Commission, who got back to me with a lot of enthusiasm and positive feedback!
