E-commerce in Indonesia has been growing rapidly in the past few years. While current estimates of market size of B2C e-commerce in Indonesia are in the region of US$5-6 billion, the market is expected to grow rapidly to US$10 billion by 2020, according to estimates by eMarketer and Frost&Sullivan. Despite the fast growth, Indonesia’s e-commerce ecosystem is hampered by poor penetration of credit cards and one of the highest cart abandonment rates in Asia. Less than 3% of the population has access to credit cards, with the vast majority of buyers still relying on bank transfer and Cash on Delivery (CoD).
