Internet retailing is a comparatively new concept in Algeria, which started to pick up in the review period. Internet retailers started to operate in the market not long ago; however, they are expected to become increasingly popular during the forecast period.
Internet retailing has proven to offer the same advantages as direct selling, in addition to further simplifying the purchasing process by offering more secure forms of payment and by allowing customers to order and collect their purchases whenever and wherever they want. As a result, consumers are expected to move away from direct selling towards internet retailing in the forecast period.
Consumer trust in online payments was rather low in 2018. However, this is expected to change in the forecast period, as consumers are likely to start using online payment methods.
Arcofina Holding remained among the leaders in internet retailing in Algeria in value terms in 2018, although accounted for only a small value share due to the high fragmentation of the competitive landscape. The company offers a wide range of products at competitive prices, as well as a wide range of delivery options.
The competitive environment in internet retailing in Algeria remains fragmented in 2018. Amazon offers a very wide range of products in Algeria, and is already extremely well-known in the country; not least as it offers a highly trusted delivery service, but also the option to compare prices.
Despite being characterised by weak sales, which can be explained by low internet penetration and the poor competition online, the influx of new entrants could potentially be significant in the future. Despite this, most consumers in Algeria will continue to use offline stores, with store-based retailing continuing to represent the vast majority of overall value sales.
