🤳📽️ Does #TikTokmademebuyit ring a bell?

An event, whose name we won’t mention, has accelerated online shopping. TikTok saw the opportunity and has integrated online shopping into their platform. Furthermore, a survey claims that from 2019 to 2020 the number of US social e-commerce shoppers grew 25% to 80m, a number which is forecast to grow to more than 100m by 2023. As you can imagine, many companies would want to hop on the bandwagon, and TikTok is no exception.
