As of June 2015, only 4.2% of Yerevan population made purchases from Armenian online stores or platforms.

This figure is derived from the marketing research implemented by R-Insights Research and Consulting Company in the period of 20 May to June 4, 2015. The objective of the research was to measure the incidence rate of online purchases as well as to outline the main categories of purchased goods.

As the research results show, food is the category which is most frequently purchased online by Yerevan population: 2.2% have bought food online. Jewellery/accessories and souvenirs have been purchased online by 1.3% and 1%, respectively. Less than 1% of Yerevan population has bought clothes, as well as household appliances and other items (refer to Chart 1 and Chart 2).

It is important to note that owing to the small incidence rate of purchases from Armenian online stores, the purchasers’ breakdown by basic socio-demographic parameters is not representative and statistically significant. However, the numbers are introduced to outline the general picture.

Survey findings prove that Yerevan population practice online purchases from foreign online stores and platforms more frequently: as of June 2015 14.2% of respondents have made online purchases from foreign online stores during the previous 1 year period. Mostly procured categories from overseas online stores are jewellery/accessories (6.8%), clothes (6.2%) as well as household appliances, furniture (4.2%) (refer to Chart 3 and Chart 4).
