US consumers spent $1.7 trillion online between March 2020 to February 2022, an collective increase of $609 billion over 2018 and 2019 combined. Of this $1.7 trillion, consumers ended up paying $32 billion more, due to inflation, as compared to pre-pandemic.

Online grocery saw the biggest shift, with consumers spending $6.7 billion monthly on online grocery orders, compared to $3.1 billion before COVID-19. In 2022, online spending increased 12.2% YoY in January and 15.5% YoY in February.
