Whilst currently not the most prominent country for eCommerce, it is estimated by 2020 that several hundred million dollars will be spent online by Pakistanis as they adopt the digital age. Mobile usage will of course drive this forward with more and more consumers able to shop online in this country, where eCommerce is very much in it's infancy, so much so only 10% of the population currently have internet access. In more developed areas such as Karachi the average internet penetration rate is 29.14%. The country’s overall retail market is worth $40 billion, the industry experts believe eCommerce in Pakistan is still in its infancy – it is barely 0.2% of the overall market, so whilst the figures stack up to be low, it is an emerging market with consumers looking to buy clothing, footwear and electronic goods. Retailers all across Pakistan are taking advantage of local and cross border events such Black Friday to propel their sales and get rid of their inventories. Shipping parcels will always be a common thing to do, especially to Pakistan due to it's huge population.
