B2C E-COMMERCE- B2C E-Commerce in Thailand accounts for less than 1% of total retail sales in the country, online retailing there still has a long way to grow. Thailand’s Internet penetration of less than a quarter of the population, below that of four out of six major markets in Southeast Asia, indicates that there is significant room for growth in numbers of Internet users and online shoppers. Along with an increase in Internet penetration, strengthening trust in online payments and quicker and more convenient delivery options could also spur B2C E-Commerce growth in Thailand. Some primary sources suggest that Thailand has the potential to become the second largest B2C E-Commerce market in Southeast Asia, behind Indonesia.
