BeCommerce Market Monitor
The BeCommerce Market Monitor (BCMM) is the benchmark research on online consumer spending in Belgium and is conducted quarterly. Through the Market Monitor we provide you with periodic information on total online purchases, specific segments for online consumer spending and information about the Belgian online buyer.
With the BeCommerce Shopping100 (BCS100) we offer you an annual analysis of the Top 100 webshops in Belgium. The main question we answer is: 'where do Belgian shoppers buy online?’. To this end, we carry out an analysis of the total Belgian B2C retail excluding travel, finance and insurance. The Shopping100 is exclusively offered to our members and partners and is available for consultation by non-members and non-partners for a fee.
Through our surveys you can directly contribute to the collection of relevant data about the e-commerce sector and you will also be aware of the trending topics of the moment.

Belgian retailers are obliged to adopt an omni-channel approach that seamlessly integrates a wide range of online and offline channels. Such an omni-multichannel model brings with it 5 big challenges that you can find in ourwhite paper kan terugvinden.
