Did you know that there are 8 million monthly requests on internet for wholesale purchases in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and other CIS countries (Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus, Uzbekistan and other)?
did you know that the #1 buyer country of the Chinese e-commerce sites is Russia?
We hope that the information we shared above will be sufficient to understand the online export potential to Russia. So, the demand is big; In 2018, the volume of e-commerce in Russia reached 31 billion USD.
So how do you reach this big audience?
Let us first admit that the concept of “export” appeals mostly to wholesale (B2B). The B2B volume in the world is 3 times larger than the retail volume. As mentioned above, we are talking about a market with 8 million requests on Google and Yandex for monthly wholesale purchases. And the useful information we’re going to share here is mostly B2B, so it’s about wholesale in those countries.
The market with about 282 million population speaks in ONE language. Which is that language?
Your first job is to overcome the language barrier. Russian is used in almost every post Soviet country in everyday conversations and formality. Therefore, you must translate every content you will use in marketing and sales into Russian in an appropriate way. This can be a site, catalog, customer service, etc. Don’t worry about it, because there are a lot of companies offering translation and other services. However, it is best to have someone who knows your business and russian in marketing and sales departments.
Useful information about search engines
Google is not the most used search engine in Russia. You will always be surprised while discovering this market 🙂 Yandex is the leader of the market with its 65-70% usage rate. Additionally, it is difficult to market and launch advertising in a language that you do not know.
ONE Solution for all of the above – To join B2B platforms.
Now, B2B platforms for wholesale trade like Alibaba, Kompass in the World are available. Alibaba is the right address to trade with China for now, do you know a B2B platform for wholesale trade in Russia and other Eurasian countries to reach these market?
