Alexandre Crivelaro , director of market intelligence at ABComm, said factors affecting e-commerce growth in Brazil revolved around increased shipping costs and increased demand for online shopping. Although Brazil's e-commerce sales increased in the first half of the year, consumer confidence was low against the backdrop of a sluggish economy and high inflation.

This increase in operating costs is bound to be passed on to consumers, which will undoubtedly increase the consumption costs of buyers.
