Every week more than eighty new online shops opens in the Netherlands

In the first three months of this year, 1,050 online businesses were registered in the Netherlands. Which represents about 80 per week and nearly 12 online stores per day. These figures were released Tuesday by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS).

The pandemic is prompting more and more people to start an online business, but many of them are closing only a few months after opening. More than 510 online businesses went out of business in the first three months of this year. It must be said that online success is much more difficult than we are led to believe, which is why many online sellers of clothing or home and garden items saw a fairly quick end.

In total, more than 30,200 businesses have closed, a decrease of 9,000 from the same period last year. Of these companies 85% were self-employed, most went out of business to avoid bankruptcy, and only a small portion closed due to bankruptcy.

There is also an increase in registrations for restaurants, snack bars, and ice cream parlors. Despite the current COVID restrictions in the Netherlands, these new entrepreneurs have not been deterred, and only those with a terrace will be able to receive clients
