Please Note

The “Official Language” in some countries, is not the most commonly spoken. In these cases we have tried to put the percentage that each language is spoken.

Where Youtube (or similar) is more popular than a “traditional” we have tried to state this by showing both sites e.g. Youtube/Facebook

Where we believe that the Alexa results are skewed we have changed the results according. For example Amazon comes above Rakuten in terms of Alexa rank.

Where a selling channel is popular but the country uses more than one, we have tried to put the country code of the most popular version of that site (i.e. ebay.fr)

It is important to remember that even if a selling channel is in the top 3 places, it may not receive that much traffic. This is why we have tried to include other metrics like “GDP “and “average online spend”.

Some of the Market Places we have listed are infact classified websites and perhaps not B2C friendly. We wanted to include them so that you can understand what are the popular ways to shop in any given country.

We have left out product specific market places i.e. Second Hand Car Selling Websites
