Quarterly e-commerce spendings in the Netherlands 2014-2020

Online shopping expenses in the Netherlands reached over six billion euros during the second quarter of 2020, an increase of about 12 percent when compared to the same period in 2019. The total market size of e-commerce in the Netherlands was roughly 26 billion euros in the Netherlands.

The fourth quarter normally sees an increase of e-commerce spending due to the holiday season. The Netherlands celebrates Saint Nicholas (or "Sinterklaas") on December 5, by way of giving presents to (especially) children. As of 2018, the revenue of online retail during the Sinterklaas period in the Netherlands, amounted to roughly 311 million euros, which is higher than the average online shopping weekly revenue outside of the 'Sint' season. Consumers saw access to other consumers' reviews and home delivery as reasons to use online purchase channels for their Saint Nicholas or Christmas gifts.
