Shoe and clothing online retailers most felt the outflow of customers

Since January 2015, the online trading market in Russia has reached 305 billion rubles. Compared with the first half of 2014, the growth rate was 28%, according to a study by Data Insight.

For example, according to a Kinnevik report, Lamoda’s turnover has nearly doubled over half a year (3,21 billion rubles).

Data for the second quarter are breaking records for the increase in the number of orders. Fixed rate 4% - the lowest over the past five years. At the beginning of the year, e-commerce was supported by the “old” prices for goods imported before the ruble depreciation, and “the desire of customers to invest the remaining ruble savings in durable goods”. In the second quarter, these factors have become irrelevant.
