Nicole Junkermann of NJF Capital presents Bolt, a tech company that aims to reinvent the e-commerce payments stack top to bottom with a suite of tools designed to streamline transactions across web platforms.

The Covid-19 crisis has seen winners and losers in online retail.

According to analysis from checkout platform Bolt, US clothing sales are down 59.8% and travel tickets down 42.2%.

Meanwhile, food sales are up 164% and alcoholic drinks up 129%.

As well as confronting the challenge of trading during lockdown, retailers across the globe have played their part in the battle against Covid-19.

Retailers Give Back is an online index launched by Bolt to highlight the ways retailers are supporting their communities through the crisis.

Like clothing outlets such as Burberry and Zara supplying PPE for key workers or FreshDirect and Weight Watchers donating to foodbanks.
