This report examines the German B2C E-commerce market from the supply side, through a detailed analysis of the biggest online stores by revenue in Germany in 2014. Services, rights of use, and shops selling only digital goods (e.g. Google Play) were not considered.

The ranking is based on a detailed analysis of over 1,000 German online stores, which we firstly surveyed about their revenue in the context of the analysis. Additionally, the data was enhanced by multiple secondary data sources from professional databases (EHI, Bundesanzeiger, Statista). Based on existing data, the drivers of E-commerce revenue were identified and their influencing factors were quantified through a regression analysis, which allowed missing data to be approximated.


The report consists of two professionally prepared documents: a 72 page PDF document and an Excel file containing data on 1,000 online shops and around 175 columns including:

• Ranking
• Sales channels
• Company
• Mobile optimisation and apps (iOS, Android)
