Why Sell into Greece?

Greece’s economy has struggled over the last 10 years as its financial crisis finally came to a head in 2009. While the country has rebounded, it still lags behind many of its EU peers (it’s the 16th largest economy in the EU). GDP has contracted 8.2%. In 2020 analysts cite Greece for its proactive and effective handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and expect a return to a growth path in 2021. Despite its challenges, Greece remains an attractive market: it’s backed by the EU, uses the Euro as its national currency, and has one of the more mature consumer sectors in the growing Mediterranean region.

In 2019, approximately 47% of the population has made at least one ecommerce purchase. 2019 purchases topped more than $2 billion. Pre-Covid-19, analysts predicted double-digit growth for the Greek ecommerce market over the next four years. National marketplaces are increasingly popular and are led by e-shop.gr, plasio.gr, and zara.com. Fashion dominates the ecommerce market with 34% of the total market, followed by food and personal care, consumer electronics and media, and home goods.
