FAQ

Are sales at electronic auctions included in the e-commerce estimate?

Electronic auctions directed at individual consumers are classified as retail trade. However, commissions and fees, not sales, are included in the e-commerce estimate. This is similar to the way the Census Bureau treats sales at traditional auction houses.

For more information, visit the Monthly and Annual Retail Trade website.
