Retail operating system specialist Brightpearl has put together a list of the 50 fastest growing UK eCommerce brands, and at Lazy Susan we’re delighted to share that we've made the Lightning 50 for 2021!
We grew by an incredible 164% between December 2019 and December 2020, placing us in the 45th spot.
Brightpearl provides digital ops solutions for some of the world’s biggest retail brands, and their Lightning 50 is leading the search to celebrate UK e-tailers.
Sponsored by Trustpilot, it was launched in September of this year to highlight online retailers in the UK such as Lazy Susan that have seen rapid growth during 2020.
Brightpearl powers eCommerce brands to streamline, automate and grow fearlessly, and they've seen first-hand the incredible growth from innovative UK eCommerce companies who've been spurred on by the Coronavirus pandemic.
They decided to take a look at the revenue data behind the UK’s online shopping space to produce the definitive list of the 50 fastest growing eCommerce brands that are bucking the trend.
Hundreds of companies applied but only 50 of the best made the final list!
About the Lightning 50 and how their rankings work
The Lightning 50 league table was launched by Brightpearl to recognise eCommerce providers that have seen business boom during the pandemic.
Their aim is to showcase the fastest growing eCommerce brands in the UK, from a range of sectors, with annual turnovers from £1M-£250M.
The rankings take 2019 revenue and compare it to 2020 revenue growth.
In total, the top 50 companies generated £341,347,228 in revenue and serviced more than 20 million customers.

Great news for the team at Lazy Susan
I was really shocked to get the news. The Lazy Susan team are all thrilled with this recognition. The pandemic has been a challenge for us, as it has been for all. But this makes us all proud of the hard work we've put in. Demand was incredibly high for garden furniture in the summer of 2020. Many of the big high street and DIY brands were struggling to fulfil orders or even get product into stores, so it took a big team effort to ensure we got our furniture onto peoples patios. The team spirit we managed to maintain and foster, even with many working remotely, under pressure, home schooling their kids, it all played such a big part. I'm really proud to make the list and even prouder of everybody at Lazy Susan. We've some really exciting plans in the pipeline for the next 12 months too, so I'm hoping we can place even higher on next years list!
If you're an exceptional e-tailer based in the UK and think you deserve a spot on the list in 2022, then you can register here.
Thanks to all of you for helping us land a spot in Brightpearl Lightning 50 for 2021!
