Buying online in a neighbouring country can be beneficial for consumers and merchants on both sides of the Rhine. A recent study within the "IT2Rhine 2020 E-Commerce" INTERREG IVA project has sought to identify the key elements that stimulate a dynamic crossborder e-commerce market as well as the barriers that currently prevent its development.
The study published in October 2013, available in French and German, can be downloaded for free on the project website.
