Default Walmart goes to war with Amazon by buying Jet.com for $3 billion in largest e-commerce purchase in history

Quote:
Walmart has purchase e-commerce site Jet.com for about $3 billion
The retail giant is trying to compete with Amazon.com in online sales
Walmart dominates the market in in-store sales but falls fourth in digital
Jet.com has seen steady growth over the last year and should continue
Four million shoppers use Jet.com and it is predicted to make $1B a year

Walmart is struggling to maintain an online clientele and Jet.com
might be a perfect pairing to help the retail giant compete with
Amazon.com
