E-commerce in Bulgaria Sees Dynamic Growth
Friday, 30 September 2016
E-commerce in Bulgaria grew 23 percent for a year, experts reported at a forum on the subject. In this context they have predicted staff shortage. The country already has a huge number of e-commerce outlets with over 3.5 million users. On average Bulgarians spend online about 150 euros per capita per annum. Next year e-commerce growth is set to continue to an estimated 350 million euros or 1.25 percent of the gross domestic product. Potentially this trade could reach the highest growth from among other industries in the country, which in turn will lead to an increased demand for staff. Some electronic stores in Bulgaria have over 10 years of history and over 500,000 euros in monthly turnover.
