In the Netherlands, during the first half of this year, web stores have witnessed growth despite the economic crisis. That was revealed in a study published by the online market research bureau Multiscope.
E-commerce sites such as bol.com, Wehkamp and Neckermann clearly welcomed more visitors than before. Almost half of the Top 20 websites in the Netherlands are engaged in e-commerce. On the other hand, content websites such as startpagina and nu.nl are losing their position because of the emergence of community websites such as Facebook and Hyves.nl.
