Russians do not reduce purchases in foreign online stores

For the first quarter of 2014, the demand for buying goods in foreign online stores from Russians increased by more than 5% compared to the same period last year, analysts at the City Express express delivery service said.

“Russians continue to confidently increase the volume of purchases in foreign online stores, even despite the restrictions on the cost and weight of parcels introduced in January,” notes City Express CEO Alexei Kithatov. “Foreign retailers continue to attract residents of our country due to a wider assortment, and due to lower prices for goods. So, today the average check of Russians making orders in foreign online stores is $ 50-110. The most popular are Aliexpess, Alibaba, eBay and Amazon. "

As a reminder, in January, the threshold for duty-free import of Internet parcels was lowered from 1000 to 150 euros. However, the restrictions did not significantly affect the volume of orders of Russians in foreign online stores. "Limitations on the maximum cost of a one-time parcel will not lead to conceptual changes in the market, if the maximum amount of orders by an individual during a calendar month is not limited. With this development of events, the structure of purchases will slightly change, but taking into account the trends of rapid development and growth of volumes e -commerce in Asia, some of the goods from Western countries will be replaced by Asian counterparts, which will significantly reduce the cost of consumer goods. Also, Chinese electronic trading platforms are traditionally more flexible in the formation of price offers and the design of purchases, "Alexei Kichatov is sure.

Russia still holds the status of one of the fastest growing markets for online trading. According to analysts, over the next several years, its growth rate will be 25-30% per year.
