Online sales were flat in the first quarter and might be stabilizing, according to data released Wednesday by comScore Inc. The snapshot presented a different and worse picture of the state of online retail than earlier estimates put out by the National Retail Federation and Forrester Research Inc.
U.S. consumers bought $31 billion worth of goods in the first quarter, the same amount they bought in the same period the year before, comScore said. (The number excludes travel, autos, auctions and large corporate purchases.)
