A quick review of online companies in the consumer goods arena has shown that many are sold out and delivery has become the next big challenge. My belief is that this "forced" customer behavior especially for those who have never done much ordering online will lead to a new trend.

The platforms people have already mentioned, but also the public cloud companies that have the infrastructure that can actually handle these spikes in traffic, i.e. AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure. Any of the other services need these running on the back end, or they will collapse under the traffic load.
