An increasing internet penetration throughout the country means that the internet based industry in Mauritius is growing very rapidly. We reviewed and tested the most popular online shops available in Mauritius right now.
An online shop is a special form of mail order business in which a dealer or manufacturer offers commercial goods or services for sale or rent. Communication between online shops and interested parties is largely via the Internet. The online shop includes the task of product presentation as well as the handling of the order and purchase process. Online shops are also made accessible on smartphones or tablet PCs via shopping apps (mobile shopping). During the ordering process, all information necessary for the dispatch of the goods and the processing of payment is collected from the customer during the checkout. In the course of the Internet boom at the end of the 20th century, online shops became increasingly important. Internet traders have the advantage that they do not need a physical sales room, which is available virtually as a website. Some online merchants therefore also work without their own storage rooms. Orders are forwarded directly to the manufacturer or wholesaler who takes care of the picking and shipping of the goods (so called drop shipping).
Beginning of 2018, more that 64% of the population in Mauritius uses the internet. More and more customers than ever before are using online services to complete transactions. This includes internet banking as well as online shopping. The use of credit cards is on the rise too, paving the way for more ecommerce activity in the near future. As you can see from our online shops section there are already a great number of successful online shops in Mauritius. Although Mauritius still faces certain ecommerce challenges - limited internet infrastructure and frequent power outages - the current trends are quite promising. With the recent introduction of secure payment options and the ongoing introduction of fiber-broadband we will see many more online shops being launched in the coming months and years.
