Why Sell into Iceland?

Iceland, while culturally well known with a long and storied history, remains physically isolated with a small native population. The small geothermal island in the North Atlantic is isolated, but combined with a relatively strong GDP and economy, make it an interesting market for ecommerce merchants.

Ecommerce in Iceland is more of a necessity than novelty or convenience. Items not locally produced must be shipped. What used to be done through mail and the phone is now done through ecommerce. Icelanders are fond of platforms like AliExpress, and typically shop at European and American marketplaces that can guarantee the fastest shipment times.
