Why should you be a partner of Eshops Association?
Because of the digital single market coming and because of the market competition from USA, Asia, ... a huge market competition is coming for Slovak and Czech eshops. If we don´t want to see our eshops vanished one by one and how tens of thousands of people lost their jobs, we should help them with wider, cleaner and more accessible services offer.
In additional to that, this area will have the biggest growth potential in incoming years. According to forecasts, until the year 2020 this market will grow up by 15 – 20% per year.
European Commission is working on the digital single market initiation, it is essentially about removing national barriers to transactions that take place online, it should guarantee easier online selling between Member States in European Union. The Commission is proposing to promote e-commerce in the EU by making payment services easier to use, easier VAT system, modernization of intellectual property rights and bigger safeguarding privacy, personal data protection online. At the same time they sought to abolishing roaming charges in Europe, to improve postal services by reducing charges, borderless mobile data connectivity, what will lead to improve possibilities for shopping via mobile phones.
As a result of these, a new environment should arise, where online selling through internet in whole European Union will be as easy as online selling in Slovakia or in Czech Republic.
