With Fruugo, we are publishing a series of country marketplaces briefs and today take a look at Israel:

Israel is a relatively small market, but ecommerce is growing at over 17% year on year. Because of the relatively limited and expensive supply of products domestically, Israeli consumers are used to shopping from international sites. AliExpress is the most popular foreign site followed by Top categories are Electronics, Media and Fashion.

Peak holidays for shopping are Rosh Hashanah in the autumn and Hanukkah, typically in December.
