An Overview of the Germany eCommerce Market

The resurgence of offline shopping as stores reopened post-pandemic has impacted online retailers Germany. On top of that, inflation and increased price-sensitivity have led to a decline in online shopping frequency.

As a result, consumers are being very cautious with their spending. Nevertheless, it remains an important channel for convenience and for consumers to discover the best deals.
