Jena, Germany, August 30, 2011 – Good news for online sellers: according to a recent online survey by Skrill (www.skrill.de), more than half of Germany’s e-tailers expect increased sales this summer compared to 2010, rather than the traditional mid-year slump. Intershop’s full-service clients have gone one better, with every customer whose online store is operated fully by Intershop boosting revenues. Substantial increases of up to 100 percent per month remain the trend—Intershop’s biggest full-service client again achieved record sales in June, exceeding even last year’s Christmas figure.
“Overall, we are already very close to last year’s total sales and are therefore looking forward to significant double-digit growth rates by the end of the year,” says Ronni Swialkowski, store manager at Intershop. The e-commerce provider’s full-service customers include Mexx, Roadsign, Rösch, Miele, and Betzold, who outsource all or key aspects of their online retailing activities, including logistics, returns, and payment handling, to Intershop.
