Russian Export Center has updated its online export section. Now the Marketplace Navigator offers 78 e-commerce platforms with a well-developed algorithm for Russian companies to launch export. The number of marketplaces has doubled as compared to last year.
“Our work on the development of a pool of sites is focused on three main areas: expanding the geography of marketplaces; diversification of industries and proposal of new promotion models”, Veronika Nikishina, General Director of REC JSC.
If to speak about new geographies, foreign platforms of a number of Asian countries, Vietnam and Japan appeared in the Navigator. REC is now piloting online sales of Russian products on those platforms. Also, Navigator includes about 15 European platforms, as well as several online solutions for organizing the export of furniture and construction material to the European market.
Several platforms to promote travel services has been added as well. . Despite the objective circumstances, exporters now have the possibility to ensure their presence on international specialized portals and prepare foreign audiences for the removal of restrictions, for which entrepreneurs simply do not have enough time during the height of the season.
“Given the wide range of websites, we are sure that any Russian company, from micro-businesses to large companies, will be able to find a suitable solution for starting or expanding export sales online. The Navigator offers a convenient filtering mechanism that will help one navigate through a variety of options. Plus, the Navigator is an integral part of our joint program with regional export support centers for the placement and promotion of SME products on international platforms with state support, which allows us to offer a comprehensive solution for entering foreign online markets,” Veronika Nikishina.
