In comparison with the first half of 2017 of expenditure have grown by 24%. Growth of online purchases has continued, even despite ruble depreciation in relation to dollar and euro against the background of new American sanctions of the Photo: depositphotos.com Russians in the first half of the year 2018 have spent for purchases in foreign online stores 5,19 billion dollars, follows from statistics of the Central Bank of Russian Federation. The peak of expenses has fallen on the I quarter when expenditure for online shopping reached 2,72 billion dollars, in the II quarter they have decreased to 2,48 billion dollars. Participants of the market say that the statistics of the Central Bank is incorrect and figures are strongly exaggerated. According to National association of remote trade, Russians have spent for Internet purchases on foreign online platforms no more than 3 billion dollars for all reporting period. Then for what to the Bank of Russia to overestimate statistics? The president of association Alexander Ivanov:aleksandr Ivanov the president of National association of remote trade "Existence of the black or gray market when crossing goods in parcels answers I completely exclude, it is nonsense, he doesn't exist. Why official data of the Central Bank have departed to space from where the figure in 5 billion dollars which is several percent more, than in 2017 has undertaken? Last year for the entire period there were 3 billion dollars: these are problems not of business, and account. The lion's share of these figures from area of the fantasy caused by need of motivation for the ban to citizens of Russia to make such purchases. She never coincides with reality. Today situation usual: growth of number of purchases at the same time continues at fall of the average check which made 12,5-13 dollars in 2016, 10 dollars in 2017, and now he falls below this mark". However, Russians have objective reasons to refuse purchases in the Russian online stores in favor of foreign. Even despite growth of dollar and euro, these purchases are cheaper the Russian, the managing partner of "220 Volts" Alexey Fyodorov:aleksey Fyodorov the managing partner considers "220 Volts" "The most part of goods is manufactured not in Russia, and arrives from abroad. Respectively, there is no difference: at dollar rate increase goods will rise in price equally and abroad, and in Russia. Goods from abroad aren't assessed with taxes and duties, it became more favorable to buy them. If in Russia the goods cost 100 dollars, and in a ruble equivalent the foreign goods have fallen in price, respectively, Russians make absolutely right choice, buying all abroad. It becomes absolutely senseless to buy in Russia, the state does everything possible that Russians bought goods only not in the Russian Federation". The figure in 5 billion dollars can include not only purchases of physical goods, but also other expenses, for example on transportation of these goods, participants of the market consider. Since 2019 the bigger number of the Russian buyers of foreign online stores can face need to pay duty. Now duties aren't collected from the acquired goods which cost is lower 1 thousand euros a month, and weight has laid down
