eCommerce in Portugal

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]According to INE data in a study published on November 21, 2017, in Portugal 34% of the population shop online. This therefore means an increase of 15% compared to 2010.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Since 77% of Portuguese families have access to the internet and 76% of these people access it via broadband, the business opportunity is quite attractive.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Needless to say, at the rate that this population is growing, opportunities will also follow this trend. The number of potential customers increases as well.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In the same study, INE reports that 76% of the population uses smartphones to access the internet. A significant part of the stores currently online offer platforms not optimized for these devices. Differentiation advantage is easy to achieve.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Expand your business

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Already own your own local trade? Why not expand your business through an eCommerce platform? Why not increase sales to a much larger number of potential customers?[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Opening an online store gives you the freedom to think bigger and take your product further. It also allows you to develop new products that you might not be able to sell in the limited population of your geographic area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_screen_section_height=”no”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]

Where is it is no longer a problem

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Your geographical position can be an impediment. This if you want to reach a large number of people that you will only find in big cities. It can even compromise the viability of your business due to costs with stock maintenance and displacements between warehouses and warehouses. An eCommerce platform allows greater flexibility and facilitates the management of your sales and stocks (when they exist).

Opening an online store allows a small store located in the interior of the country to sell throughout the country or even abroad.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]To manage an online store, all you need is an internet connection and a device that allows you to open a browser. With new technologies and the growing coverage area of the national internet, you can even run an online beach holiday store, at least theoretically.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
