Research: The 10 most visited Retail Sites in Latam

What are the most-visted retail sites by users among Latin Americans? How do they behave when it comes to making consumption decisions? The answers to these questions are here.

Translated by Gretchen Gardner

The fact that the users visit retail sites doesn't mean that they will actually make a transaction: sometimes, the inquiry isn't directly related to an online purchase, but a search for information on the characteristics of a product or relevant information to making a purchase decision.

Visiting different retail sites, users don't indicate an interest in particular articles, nor do they express interest in particular brands. Here, we present user preferences according to the most-visited retail sites by residents of Latin America (based on comScore rankings). First of all,, the online marketplace dedicated to e-commerce and online auctions, partly owned by eBay, is by far the leader with more than twice the unique visitors of the second ranked B2W Digital. Some more insights below the table.
