Expanding into Germany: What You Need to Know About the 5th Largest Ecommerce Market Worldwide (RWB Digital Series)

Thursday 24th June 2021 | 02:00PM UK (GMT+1)

With $73 billion flowing through the German ecommerce market last year, Germany accounts for 25% of the European ecommerce market turnover, and is the fifth largest ecommerce market worldwide. Particularly lucrative for fashion-related products and consumer electronics, it's no surprise that major brands and retailers are flocking to engage the 81.1m people who live in Germany, 85% of whom have shopped online within the last year.

It's a very valuable territory for online merchants.

But how can retailers ensure they thrive amongst competition in Germany?

As with any market, Germany comes with its own specific challenges to succeed. For example, Germany is known for its high return rate. Some reports claim that 50% of all orders are returned. This is important to know when selling there.

But what else should you know when selling into Germany? And how can you overcome and manage some these challenges to ensure you're able to make expanding into this market rewarding for your business?
