This market is expected to reach 24 billion euros by 2015. The country now has 61.4 million internet users, but that will soon be about 80 million of them next year.

Russia has had some trouble with ecommerce, as there was a history of distrust in online payments and fraudulent ecommerce vendors. These problems are now less prevalent, which means ecommerce is ready to get a big boost. Nowadays there are more than a quarter million ecommerce orders per day, and the ecommerce market is expected to be worth 23 billion euros in 2014, rising to 27,6 billion in 2015.
