Cross-Border Online Shopping Expanding in Europe: Report

Hamburg-based secondary market research firm’s new publication, “Europe Cross-Border B2C E-Commerce 2018,” provides detailed information on the continued growth of cross-border online shopping in 20 countries of Europe.

Hamburg, Germany, September 29, 2018 --( Online shoppers in Europe increasingly purchase outside their home nation

The lure of products not available through domestic sources or a price advantage elsewhere has led to a double-digit increase of cross-border online shopping over the past five years. The report indicates that while security of payments information and question of duties involved remain as concerns, nearly half of Europe’s online shoppers have made a cross-border purchase.

China and USA among top destinations of Europe’s online shoppers

The leading destination for cross-border purchases varies by country, but overall, the online merchants based in China, the USA, UK and Germany received the most traffic, with Alibaba, Amazon, eBay and Wish as popular portals. The top items purchased cross-border in Europe were apparel and electronics, with books or other media tied with cosmetics/fragrances for third place, according to sources cited in the report.

European online sellers also join in cross-border E-Commerce

Europe-based online merchants of all sizes also have recognized the potential of cross-border sales and attempt to limit the dominance of the global giants of E-Commerce. A survey of online sellers in the EU summarized in the report shows that cross-border sales penetration is essentially the same for large and small enterprises.
