French railway company is largest online seller

According to the French E-commerce Magazine, voyages.sncf.com is France's largest online seller as the website of the French national railway brings in more money than Vente-Privée and Cdiscount.com.

Twice as big as closest competitors

The French magazine has listed French online sellers based on turnover and concluded that the SNCF managed the largest turnover through its website. In 2013, the railway company managed a 3.4 billion euro turnover, 3 % higher than the year before. Vente-Privée came in second with 1.6 billion euro, a nearly 25 % increase, and number three was Cdiscount with 1.4 billion euro, up 10 %.

 

Internet Retailer recently divulged a top 500 of Europe's largest online retailer with Amazon unsurprisingly at number one, closely followed by German Otto Group and British Tesco.
