According to market research firm IBISWorld, the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on industries around the world continues to climb everyday. With coronavirus cases spreading rapidly in Germany and Italy, pressure is growing for a broader response in the country’s IT & tech and business industry.

The report by EcommerceWiki suggests that around 69% cross-border purchases come from within Europe to Germany. Over 55% of shoppers from another country don’t feel comfortable shopping on a foreign e-commerce website that is not in Germany.

Germany is a very strong market for e-commerce startups. Check the retail e-commerce sales stats in Germany for the period of 2017 to 2023.

So, If you’re planning for a business expansion in the e-commerce market, you should definitely take the Germany market into consideration.

Are you also looking to design a new web application for retailing? Are you planning to relaunch your existing online retail store? 

If the answer is yes, then to provide you with information on e-commerce companies, I've centralized the resources here. We all know that hiring a right tech partner is important for retailers because without that you can’t make your dreams true. And, when I say dreams, I mean your very first web application or web store.  

Although, the world of the internet is there, how you will find that one company for your development project. Maybe you will compare services of two, three or five companies. Maybe you ask your friends to refer to some good options. 

However, this will never give you the right choices.

I have been approached by many startup owners to give them advice on the best e-commerce development firms. I give them the right advice based on the company's success metrics, growth stats, work quality, number of clients, region-wise preference, and clients reviews. This is certainly a reason they trust my advice. 

Here I am giving a list of e-commerce development companies for your help by taking the following parameters into consideration.

  • Company’s performance
  • Company’s reliability quotient
  • Quality of professional services provided
  • Team strength of a firm
  • Client’s reviews & feedback

The list of companies I am sharing here also have a friendly outsourcing policy, high-quality development, low cost service offering, and favorable time zone.
