An increase of up to 171% per week, compared to the same week of 2019, was observed in the consumer spending in online stores in April, setting a new record after March when the quarantine period began.
Evaluating the change in online spending from the first 9 weeks of the year (before COVID-19), it appears that e-commerce in Greece has now increased sixfold in the weeks 10 to 18.
The assessment of May is expected with great interest because the physical network of stores will now be active.
This research is carried out monthly by GR.EC.A, the Hellenic Electronic Commerce Association in collaboration with the BestPrice & Skroutz, Greek price comparison machines.
The data was drawn from 4.451 eshops listed by Skroutz and 2.116 eshops listed by BestPrice.
