Despite fears about a drop in Internet and e-commerce use by customers, U.S. retail e-commerce in the fourth quarter grew by more than 13% over the previous year. According to the Department of Commerce, retail e-commerce sales totaled $10 billion as opposed to $860 billion in total retail sales. Total retail sales grew by only 5.3 percent over the previous year.
