Almost one third of all clothing purchases are conducted online. Market dominated by few companies The yStats.com study found that the online apparel and accessories market in Russia is dominated by a handful of companies. Ten online clothing companies account for almost 50% of all clothing B2C E-Commerce sales. The most popular companies for online shoppers are Quelle.ru, Otto.ru and Kupivip.ru, but other companies such as Wildberries.ru, and Laredoute.ru are also benefiting from the growth of sales in the sector. Quelle.ru sells European brands such as NEXT, Esprit, Lascana, s.Oliver, and others. Wildberries.ru has overcome one of the barriers to online clothing shopping by opening a hundred try-on stations in regions of Russia, and processes about 350,000 orders each month.
