How We Gather the Data for the Latin America 500 Guide

Researchers contact each retailer several times over the course of data collection to compile, collect and fact-check each merchant's information.

If the merchant did not provide full financial, operations and web site summary information, Internet Retailer used metrics from that retailer's category as well as analyst interviews to formulate estimates. If the company did not provide sales figures, Internet Retailer estimated sales based on traffic and assumed conversion rate for that retailer's category and used analyst interviews to formulate estimates.

For monthly visits and monthly unique visitors, official numbers were supplied by many retailers. When a retailer did not reveal numbers, researchers used comScore or Internet Retailer estimates.

In all instances where an estimate is used or the data is supplied from a third party, the figure is footnoted. Retailers were given multiple opportunities to review and respond to estimates and metrics provided by third-party research firms.
