Leading countries for cross-border e-commerce purchases from Belgium 2018

This statistic shows the answers to a survey question regarding the leading countries for cross-border e-commerce purchases from Belgium in 2018. 33 percent of Belgian respondents indicated they purchased goods online through a website in the Netherlands. In comparison, 21 percent of the respondents indicated they bought something from France. Language and the local presence of Amazon look to be important drivers for online shopping behavior in Europe as online shoppers from Ireland, Austria and Belgium were most likely to buy products and services from a foreign e-commerce retailer in 2018. The Netherlands and Poland are exceptions to this, as both have a strongly developed domestic e-commerce market.

Please specify the country from which you bought your most recent online cross-border purchase?
