The Russian eCommerce Market at Glance
Many Russians are afraid of buying from abroad.
Why? Because the Russian customs-clearance system is cumbersome, it's slow and can hit consumers with unexpected charges — a nasty surprise when all they want is to enjoy the freedom to shop online and experience the benefits of a global marketplace.
Before a shopper can receive a foreign delivery in Russia, they first have to provide a bank statement to show the actual value of the merchandise.
Then, before they can have their parcel delivered, they have to give their passport number and tax identification number to the courier and then pay them the customs duty directly. It's a stressful process, fraught with suspicion on the part of the customer, and it puts many off.
