UK Germany and France Power Online Retail , forms 71% europe online sales

 Uk, Germant France  tops  in Online Spends

Online Retailing Research - Centre for Retail Research, Nottingham UK: "E-commerce is one of the fastest growing markets in Europe. The statistics are problematic as state statistical research organisations tend to underestimate the size of the sector. There are problems in determining online sales from abroad, because foreign firms may not wish to comply with the UK statistical authorities, and in accurate sampling given that the sector is changing rapidly. There are also issues about whether to include mail order when it is mainly online and how to account for partial online ordering such as click and collect.

Online retailers in only three countries, UK, Germany and France accounted for 71% of total European online sales."
