Research Reports

Analysing the State of Ec


Annually we research over 50 countries on multiple indicators within ecommerce and B2C cross-border selling.

This results in 18 National Ecommerce Reports, a European Ecommerce Overview Report with insights for European countries, a Latin America Ecommerce Overview Report with insights for the Latin countries, a AfricaEcommerce Overview Report with insights for the raising African ecommerce markets and  a Global Ecommerce Overview Report.

We do this both for Ecommerce Europe, the European association for companies selling online to support their 25,000+ company members in doing cross borderecommerce as well as for 40+ e-commerce associations worldwide in countries such as Australia, Brazil, China, Mexico, Russia, etc. 

The goal of these reports is to provide insights into national and regional  ecommerce markets in order to help online selling companies make better choices when going cross-border.
