Why target Switzerland’s e-commerce market?

switzerland-destination-target-icon-01
High order valuesswitzerland-destination-yellow-line-01

According to the “iPhone index”, which measures how many hours a citizen of a given country needs to work to afford an iPhone, Swiss people only have to work 20 hours to afford an iPhone. That’s compared to over 40 hours for Germans and Austrians. And that high earning potential translates into high order values online.

switzerland-destination-target-icon-02
Lack of choice in Switzerlandswitzerland-destination-yellow-line-01

Some goods simply aren’t available to buy in Switzerland as it’s more cost-effective for retailers to store only best-selling products in Swiss warehouses due to its smaller population than neighbouring France and Germany. For e-commerce retailers, this means Swiss consumers are used to buying from abroad.

switzerland-destination-target-icon-03
High domestic pricesswitzerland-destination-yellow-line-01

High wages mean high prices, so Swiss shoppers are used to looking abroad for better deals. For clothing, electronics and other consumer goods, the Swiss are happy to source cheaper products cross-border.

switzerland-destination-target-icon-04
Happy to buy cross-borderswitzerland-destination-yellow-line-01

Despite the transaction costs and other fees, importing goods into Switzerland is still cheaper than buying locally in Switzerland. For foreign e-commerce retailers, this is great news as Swiss consumers will come looking for your store.
