Is there an equivalent online marketplace to amazon.co.uk for products?

This question was asked as part of our webinar on Russia which can be found at:

Answer

Nothing is as developed as Amazon. Most Russians live in blocks of flats kept secure by locked doors at street level. Access can be difficult. Kupivip with whom we have had dealings in the past solved this by using Post Offices as drop off points. Russia has huge numbers of sub post offices. Recently some new market entrants have developed equivalent solutions. There are several of them. No one is emerging from the pack yet. It’s a huge country. One warehouse in Moscow doesn’t really offer great service.
