Spain and Italy have growing ecommerce markets that offer great potential.

‘Italy and Spain both offer great conditions’

According to the company, which was known as Sparwelt up until the first of this month, Italy and Spain both offer great conditions for the new portals. “Italy has the fourth-largest voucher market in Europe after the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. And although ecommerce in Spain is still relatively undeveloped compared to other European markets, the voucher and cashback market has been growing steadily since 2018. So, the new portal should be the answer to the growing demand”, Checkout Charlie explains.
