New survey of e-commerce habits
Both consumers and companies are increasingly choosing to shop online. But only 18 percent of consumers who last year used the Internet privately, bought anything online from another EU country. This compared with 55 percent who bought something in their own country.
The EU wants your opinion
The European commission now ants to investigate these facts further. A questionnaire aims to gather the views of interested parties on how to remove contractual barriers when buying online, both digital content and common goods.
