The availability of AliExpress products threatens the collapse of e-commerce in Russia

This opinion was expressed by the president of the Association of Internet-trading companies (AKIT) Alexei Fedorov, having read the statistics on sales of AliExpress.

According to a study by GfK Rus, the share of online purchases by Russian users in Chinese online stores over the past three years has grown from 25% to 60%. This growth was largely due to the popularity of the AliExpress trading platform, which accounts for about 90% of all online orders from China. In the structure of AliExpress, the share of purchases from Russia is at least 35%, with an “average check” of 980 rubles.

According to Alexei Fedorov, “Russia is the most interesting and coveted market for China, because there are no taxes on individuals buying abroad or on foreign online stores. The goods of foreign online stores are cheaper because they are not certified, and certification is a significant part of the costs of Russian retail. ”

Over the past two years, the delivery time for a parcel from China has also been significantly reduced - from 60 days to 10-7 days. At the same time, the cost of shipping goods of the same weight within Russia can cost more than shipping from China. All this, coupled with the economic crisis that forced Russian citizens to switch to austerity regimes, led to a boom in online orders from China.

According to Alexei Fedorov, the state should take urgent measures to introduce VAT on foreign online stores, otherwise, after two years there will be no online retail in Russia.
