E-Commerce Berlin 2003

E-commerce – internet shopping – has gained hugely in significance in Germany in recent years. In doing so, e-commerce has brought about an increasing shift from over-the-counter retail to the virtual arena. Using Berlin as an example, the study quantifies this shift away from over-the-counter retail and identifies how strong the influence of e-commerce usage is being felt in individual Berlin districts.
