French retailer Auchan has started selling non-food goods via its Ukrainian online store launched last month. These include household, garden and pets goods, as well as apparel.
So far, delivery service is available in Kyiv (Kiev) and Kyiv region for 59 and 69 hryvnias ($2.2 and $2.6 respectively at the current exchange rate). Both cash and bank card payments are accepted.
To date, Internet penetration is just above 40% in Ukraine. However, 9 in 10 Ukrainian online users have shopped online at least once, which is twice as much as back in 2011.
