Online trade – popular business activity in Slovenia, EU

Even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, online trade was a popular activity for business in Europe. The EU is a large and versatile market, within which you can sell various products and services online. During the pandemic, online trade was almost the only possibility to continue with business activity as regular shops were mostly closed. Hence, many companies had to resort to selling their products and services online. Online trade in Slovenia is possible through company registration. And an online store in Slovenia gives you access to sell your products throughout EU.

Online trade – independent service or complementary to regular store

Entrepreneurs can decide to either sell their products exclusively online or also can resort to online trade to complement their services they offer in a physical store. Opting to only have an online shop reduces operating costs as you do not need to buy or rent a physical store. You can do the business from your own home or a small-scale storage with less expenses.

You can also decide to provide online trade only as a supplementary activity to your physical store. This way, you can also offer the possibility for personal pick-up at the store in order to gain trust from clients as they can inspect the item on-site.
