Cross-border e-commerce opinion in the Netherlands 2016-2018

This statistics shows the results of a survey in which internet users in the Netherlands were asked list their opinion on having to do an online purchase either domestic or abroad. The source mentions that Dutch consumers increasingly have started to use cross-border (foreign) apps when it comes to e-commerce purchases, such as AliExpress or Wish.

Language barriers and the local presence of Amazon seem to be important drivers for online shopping in Europe. Online shoppers from Ireland, Austria and Belgium, for example, seem more likely to buy products from a foreign e-commerce retailer. Chances are less in Poland and the Netherlands, however, as both countries have a strongly developed domestic e-commerce market.

When doing a reasonably big purchase on the Internet, does it matter for you in which country the company from which you are buying is located?**
