Internet Retailing in Peru - New Market Study Published

New Retailing market report from Euromonitor International: "Internet Retailing in Peru"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- Peru stands as one of the countries in Latin America with the lowest per capita expenditure on Internet retailing. This scenario can be explained by three main reasons. On one hand, there is a lack of tradition of shopping online in Peru, as consumers prefer to see the product and ask sales staff questions before taking the purchasing decision. Secondly, there is still an important part of the population who do not trust online transactions as they are concerned with identity theft and phishing. Thirdly, low- and lower-middle-income segments still have very low access to credit cards, the main payment method within online retailing. Nevertheless, the Commerce Chamber of Lima organises two special events through the year, Cyber Peru and Cyber Monday, in July and November respectively. The aim is to raise awareness of the benefits of shopping online while offering very aggressive discounts during these dates. In addition, well known bricks and mortar retailers, such as department stores, are increasing their portfolio of products offered through this channel at attractive prices in order to appeal to more consumers. As a result, Internet retailing experienced 18% growth in current value terms in 2014.
