The trend of online shopping in Montenegro is constantly increasing. According to the MONSTAT survey, the percentage of those who bought or ordered goods or services is 46.5%. The types of goods or services that people most often ordered or bought via the Internet are:
- Clothing, sports products 81.4%;
- Delivery of food or beverages 28.5%;
- Cosmetic products 20.5%;
- Toys, furniture 19.1%;
- Movies, music 14.9%;
- Video games, other computer software and their accessories 11.3%.
This data does not include traffic that was achieved during cash on delivery payments, which is still the vast majority of transactions created via the Internet. Although this huge growth is partly a result of the pandemic period, according to our analysis, e-commerce continues to grow.
