Shipping to Italy for eCommerce Sellers
As a United States exporter, you should know that consumer prices in the United States are 8.35% higher than those in Italy, not including rent. A capuccino in the United States averages $4.16 and $1.46 in Italy. It’s important to know about the state of ecommerce. Luckily, there are about 16.9 million online shoppers in Italy, and the most popular shopping categories are books, travel tickets, and clothing.
The largest shopping category for eCommerce, however, is electronics and media. In a population of 61 million people, roughly 13 million shop online. This number may even grow larger, since Italy is one of the fastest growing eCommerce markets. From 2015 to 2016, eCommerce rose by 19%.
Shipping Challenges in Italy
Italian shoppers value convenience, and those who choose not to shop online usually base this decision on a lack of added benefits. That’s why it’s important for you, an eCommerce international business, to make sure your shipping services are reliable and easy to track. Luckily, YunExpress USA can help you with both.
A deterrent for companies who want to ship to Italy using traditional DDU shipping is the average of 18 days it takes to import and delivery to consumers, which includes ten days for authorities to process and confirm any required documents and customs procedures. Nonetheless, this shouldn’t discourage you. The convenience of DDP services do make shipping to Italy much easier and allow you to deliver within just a couple of days and reach your Italian shoppers in much less time.
- Italians are used to free delivery options from local online stores but won’t expect the same if they order from overseas.
- Customers in Italy are used to having a return option. We can provide one and make it extra convenient for you!
- Payment methods preferred by Italians are Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard) and PayPal.
- The most popular alternative delivery option is delivery to a neighbor or housekeeper.
