Ecuador

eCommerce in Ecuador is still relatively small. Similar to other markets in LATAM, the main reason for consumers not buying online is the lack of trust. However, new technology and information available are shifting people’s behavior, feeling more confident with putting their payment information online, and taking the market to the expected $1.2B in 2020. One particularity that makes this market different is that the main currency is US dollars.
