BRUSSELS, March 31, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cross-Border Commerce Europe, the platform that stimulates cross-border e-commerce in Europe, releases a major research paper covering and ranking the 500 strongest European players with a focus on cross-border performance. The total online EU cross-border market represents a turnover of €171.2 billion in 2021 (excluding travel), an increase of 17% YTD. European webshops achieved €100bn cross-border in turnover. In this fourth edition of the "TOP 500 Cross-Border Retail Europe", IKEA maintains the leading position.

  • Number and percentage of cross-border visitors

Six additional secondary weighted parameters fine-tune this ranking:

  • Brand authority

  • Organic search percentage

  • Number of languages

  • Number of currencies

  • Number of payment methods

  • Local supply availability (transport and stock services)

Based on the above-mentioned methodology, the TOP 10 "Elite" retailers for 2021 are:
