paysafecard presents the New Comer Award
Purchase at the click of a button has become an every-day routine for most Swiss. According to a recent study*, more than 62% of Swiss have made an online purchase. This is a high figure even for European standards, which puts Switzerland in 3rd place when it comes to online shopping. It therefore comes as no surprise that new innovative startups, online formats and concepts of established merchants are all mingling in the market.
Yet, which Swiss online shops are the forerunners? The "Swiss E-Commerce Award 2015" celebrated14 winners from the worlds of wholesale (B2B) and retail (B2C). Attendance at this year's award ceremony on 10 June was truly record-breaking. And of course, paysafecard was also present.
Presenting the special category "New Comer Award" Marc Riedi, paysafecard CEO Switzer-land, handed over the coveted award to the new e-commerce shooting star: farmy.ch. The online shop for fresh and regional food products stood out against stiff competition and con-vinced with its professionalism, user guidance as well as authenticity of the offering. In his speech, Marc Riedi praised the ingenious concept: "If you know how challenging it is to work with food and ship food, you will realize just how much respect this concept deserves." So it comes as no surprise that the online farm shop also managed to win in two other categories.
We congratulate the winners and wish them all the best!
