People in Serbia are trading online now more than ever – the data collated by the e-commerce site Kupujem Prodajem shows.
Although sales of certain categories of goods, such as furniture and bicycles, have recorded a significant increase, it is interesting to note that the value of trading in expensive graphics cards increased from around 500,000 EUR to 1.2 million EUR in 2017 alone.
“There is no doubt that this dramatic growth has been caused by ‘mining’ for Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies in Serbia since powerful graphics card processors are the main tool for this increasingly popular business”, the report compiled by the Kupujem Prodajem platform shows.
However, mobile phones, computers and computer equipment, home appliances, as well as auto parts and auto equipment remain the most popular product categories in the sales segment. Some product categories have recorded a significant growth in this period – almost 39,000 pieces of furniture have been sold through the Kupujem Prodajem portal, which is a 35% hike compared to 2016.
Trading in clothing, home decoration, baby equipment and children’s products also increased considerably.
