Romanian ecommerce grew by 30% in 2016. In total for 2016, the country's online retail market was worth 1.8 billion Euros.

This was an increase of 10% from 2015. It is estimated that there are currently “over 20,000 websites in Romania that have shopping flow and add-to-cart buttons active”, with the market continuing to grow.
