E-Commerce Destinations

It may be a small nation, but Switzerland’s influence is substantial.

The meeting point of Central, Western, and Southern Europe, Switzerland has a strong reputation for business and economic excellence.

And this extends into e-commerce – the Swiss are prolific online spenders. In 2019 alone, Switzerland’s 3.1 million online shoppers spent €9.3 billion online. With relatively few goods being produced in Switzerland itself, Swiss consumers are understandably open to cross-border shopping, making it an attractive market for businesses looking to expand their European e-commerce presence.

As well as opportunities, Switzerland does present some unique challenges. There are four languages spoken natively, and Swiss customs can be confusing to navigate. There have also been recent regulatory changes that impact companies with a mail order presence in the Swiss Confederation, so it’s important to be aware of all these regulations to avoid unforeseen problems.
