Top Latam E-Commerce Sites: 66% of Mexicans With an Internet Connection Buy Online

What: We looked at the sites where Latin Americans, and particularly Mexicans, went looking for possible online purchases in April 2018.
Why it matters: Even though Amazon is making great efforts to expand in Latin America, the retail giant is still way far behind Mercadolibre, always the leader of online shopping in the region.

As we saw in previous editions of this ranking, Amazon had already approached MercadoLibre and was comfortably sitting in the second spot. Last month, Latin American internet users preferred B2W Digital for online purchases, but now Amazon comes back to the second spot.
