Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere you’ll have noticed that Russian internet retailing is booming. Responding to a lack of locally available goods, an army of Russian consumers have moved online, delivering an impressive 29% increase in Russian ecommerce turnover in 2011. Yet according to PWC early growth actually adds up to a penetration rate of just 43%. That leaves plenty of room for manoeuvre for fashion ecommerce entrepreneurs seeking a slice of the pie.
In Russia an underdeveloped travel infrastructure and low credit card use are both challenges to rapid online delivery. But with the right support profits are ripe for the picking. You’ll find that support at MODA.
