The retail landscape in Japan has changed over the last several years as physical stores have had to close. Online shopping made its way into the spotlight, and because of that, international shopping has spiked in popularity among Japanese buyers, who are now one of the world’s biggest group of shoppers.

The average spending per user for online shopping in Japan is more than $2,000 USD. The country contributed 29% of the worldwide eCommerce revenue growth rate, with an annual revenue growth rate of 14.7%! With that being said, Japanese buyers know that many products are more affordable elsewhere in the world.
