As an online retailer there are several awards you can enter for, and with trust building such an important factor in converting visitors to customers it’s well worth considering entering for a recognised award so that you can publish any wins on your home page.
The e-Commerce Awards were established to recognise the e-commerce businesses that have performed best in a range of areas over the past year. They’re hosted by IMRG – the UK’s industry association for e-retail - in association with the e-Commerce Expo, held in October of each year.
There are 15 separate awards available that e-businesses can put themselves forward for this year, with a further two to be decided by the Awards’ Judges: the Online Gold Award (OLGA) and Outstanding Contribution to e-Commerce.

1 Best Multi-Channel Retailer of the Year
2 International e-Retailer of the Year
3 Large e-Retailer of the Year

The last date of entry has been extended to June 22nd
