Indonesia as a country with population of internet users of over 100 million, becomes an opportunity for e-commerce business developers. This is proven, because in the last three years the growth of electronic commerce showed a positive trend. Head of Business Development of Ralali.com, Meiriana told reporters in Badung, Bali Province, on Tuesday (16/1) said the e-commerce business tendency has always increased since 2015. In 2017, electronic trade growth reached 700% or 7 folds over the previous year.
"Well, from the 7 fold growth, in 2018 we only estimate the increase is 2 fold. It is 200 percent, and that figure has reached trillions. This is our estimation per year, in 2018," Meiriana said.
The growth is estimated across all lines, from the sellers, active account holders, to the traffic. So far, the annual traffic reaches 5 million visits. Meiriana further said, the growth is evenly distributed throughout the territory of Indonesia. Not limited to Jabodetabek (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi) area, the e-commerce transactions have also reached to other regions such as Bali, Sumatra, and Kalimantan// (Hikmat/trs.Rezha)
