ECommerce numbers are from year to year, reaching new maximum. The ease and initial investment to open one is, in a way, proportionally going down.
eCommerce in Portugal
According to data from INE in a study published on November 21, 2017, in Portugal 34% of the population makes purchases online. This therefore means an increase of 15% compared to 2010.
Since 77% of Portuguese families have access to the internet and 76% of these people have broadband access, the business opportunity is very attractive
It goes without saying that as this population grows, opportunities will also follow this trend. The number of potential customers also increases.
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. The advantage of differentiation is easy to achieve.

Expand your business
Do you already have your own local business? Why not expand your business through an eCommerce platform? Why not increase sales to a much higher number of potential customers?
Opening an online store gives you the freedom to think higher and take your product further. It also allows you to develop new products that you could not sell to the limited population in your geographic area.
Where you are is no longer a problem
Your geographical position can be an impediment. This is in case you want to reach a vast number of people that you will only find in big cities. It can even compromise the viability of your business due to costs of stock maintenance and travel 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 to the entire country or even abroad.
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 scope of national internet you can even manage an online store for holidays on the beach, at least theoretically.
