Smaller e-shops run by their owners as part-time jobs make up approximately 70 percent of all the e-shops in Slovakia. The remaining 30 percent are full-time e-shops.

Based on a survey of the company Pricemania, in which 196 Slovak e-shops participated, the average annual turnover of a Slovak e-shop is between €10,000 and €30,000. Most shops work within a margin between 10 and 20 percent. Shops selling perfumes have the lowest margin while those selling clothes have the highest. An average single order by a Slovak client is between €21 and €50. According to the survey, 75 percent of e-shops have one to three locations where customers can pick up their orders in person. However, 21 percent of e-shops do not allow personal pick up of orders.
