To ask the Scottish Government how much Scotland-based businesses have raised from e-commerce sales in each year since 2016.

Answered by: Kate Forbes 22 November 2018

The latest available data for e-commerce are at the UK level and for 2016.

Using UK data and apportioning to Scotland based on business turnover it can be estimated that e-commerce sales in Scotland were of the order of £26.4bn in 2016.
