With the fastest growth rate in Latin America, Peru has great potential for international merchants who want to expand their businesses in the region. Thus, even though it’s number 6 among the Top Markets of Latam — preceded by Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile — and represents 5% of all the region’s e-commerce revenue, its U$ 13 billion market should not be overlooked.
