Trends in Russian E-commerce

Cryptocurrency

Digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are hugely popular in Russia and seen as an easy, cheap and safe way to buy goods online. The Russian government is planning and implementing new legislation to encourage the use of cryptocurrencies, showing how forward-thinking Russia’s tech sector is and opening up international e-commerce. For now, though, the majority of Russian consumers use e-wallets and cashless methods to shop online.

Mobile first

As a result of the country-wide rollout of 5G, m-commerce is set to continue its rapid growth in Russia. E-tailers are likely to see an increase in mobile payments and purchases, VR solutions and voice search, as Russian shoppers seek convenient ways to find what they’re looking for - fast.

Price comparisons

The majority of online consumers shopping cross-border in Russia are looking to find their favourite items at a better price than in the local market. Electronics; clothing; household appliances; books, music and games; and cosmetics and body care items are all popular online purchases, and Russian shoppers are happy to look internationally if they can save money.

An open-minded market

Currently, the majority of Russia’s cross-border e-commerce imports come from Asian, mostly Chinese, stores. Russian shoppers are increasingly looking further afield though, and analysis of search trends and payments show Russian consumers turning towards industry leaders in product categories, such as Turkey and Korea.
