Unser europäischer E-Commerce-Dachverband EMOTA und der französiche Verband ACSEL kooperieren

verfasst am 15.06.2012 von Christoph Wenk-Fischer


Entgegen allem, was man in Hinblick auf die Finanzkrise derzeit erlebt, wächst Europa doch ein wenig enger zusammen. Das gilt jedenfalls für die gemeinsamen Interessen im E-Commerce-Bereich:

Vor einiger Zeit hatte sich der traditionelle französische Versandhandelsverband FEVAD aus dem europäischen Verbund der EMOTA, unseres E-Commerce und Multi Channel-Dachverbandes, zurückgezogen. Man war dort wohl enttäuscht darüber, dass es innerhalb der EMOTA eine kollegiale und gleichberechtigte Zusammenarbeit aller nationalen Verbände gibt. So ist es in der EMOTA nicht möglich, dass eine einzelne nationale Organisation ihre nationalen Interessen vorbei an den anderen Mitgliedern durchsetzt oder, weil deren eigene Mitglieder E-Commerce vielleicht eher als Bedrohung, denn als Chance empfinden, das Engagement der EMOTA gerade in E-Commerce-Themen bremst. In dem Zusammenhang erinnere ich mich gut an ein Interview des FEVAD-Geschäftsführers, in dem er explizit davor warnt, bei ausländischen E-Commerce-Anbietern zu kaufen:

"Il vaut mieux acheter le produit en France s'il y est disponible, parce qu'au moins c'est la garantie que le droit français sera applicable, et si vous avez besoin d'exercer des recours, c'est beaucoup plus facile que vis-à-vis d'un site étranger", prévient toutefois M. Lolivier."

Umso mehr freue ich mich, dass die EMOTA nun in Frankreich einen neuen Partner gefunden hat, der die kollegiale Arbeitsweise, die E-Commerce-Fokussierung und besonders die gemeinsame europäische Ausrichtung teilt: die "Association de L'Economie Numerique - ACSEL".

Herzlich willkommen und auf gute Zusammenarbeit!

Abschließend gibt es jetzt - ganz europäisch - nach meinem deutschen Beitrag und dem französischen Zitat noch ein englisches Zitat, denn hier kommt der Text der gemeinsamen Pressemitteilung von EMOTA und ACSEL:

"EMOTA (EUROPE) and ACSEL (FRANCE) join forces to strengthen growth of e-commerce in Europe - Major new alliance in advocacy for e-commerce and the digital economy at EU level

On 15 June 2012, EMOTA, the European Multi-channel and Online Trade Association, and ACSEL, the French Association of the Digital Economy, signed a partnership agreement. The two organisations will work together to advocate a barrier-free European Single Market for the trade of goods and services online and to promote the development of e-commerce and the digital economy in Europe.


EMOTA, based in Brussels, is the European organisation that represents e-commerce and distance selling companies in Europe through its member associations in 16 European countries, thus covering 85% of the total European e-commerce market.


ACSEL, based in Paris, represents the digital economy in France with a European perspective, and its objective is to support businesses in a transformation of the economy driven by digital technologies, by building consumer trust in digital services and expanding cross-border e-commerce throughout Europe.


Walter Devenuto, the President of EMOTA, welcomed the new partnership: 'EMOTA has always considered France to be a key market which is at the forefront of innovation. We have a high regard for ACSEL ́s uniquely strong membership in the French digital economy and its dynamic European vision. This partnership will add much weight to our advocacy work in Brussels.'
Pierre Alzon, the President of ACSEL said: 'With EMOTA as our partner in Brussels, our strategy for the Digital Economy will acquire an even more visible European dimension. Together we can make a major contribution to the realisation of the European Digital Single Market. We are looking forward to our association and cooperation with EMOTA and its members'.


EMOTA has just published online an open-access database on global e-commerce statistics: The IMR Smart Knowledge Base is available through the EMOTA homepage (www.emota.eu). According to EMOTA statistics, Europe now has the largest e-commerce market in the world, after growth of 19% in 2011 allowed it to overtake North America. The total value of the European market was then estimated at €246bn, leaving North America behind at€237bn. Online retail sales now account for around 5.1% of the total value of the retail market in Europe, with 240 million e-shoppers spending an average of €1,000 each.


ACSEL has just published its latest book, “Cross-border e-commerce”, which evaluates the obstacles facing the development of cross-border e-commerce and sets out the means by which these obstacles can be overcome and such a development can be achieved. ACSEL’s book thus advocates the development of European cross-border e-commerce to promote the emergence of players capable of operating on a continental and global scale, in response to the current American predominance. In order for this challenge to take place successfully, ACSEL’s book recommends the following development projects for cross-border e-commerce:

•    organising a marketing strategy taking into account cultural idiosyncrasies;

•    tackling legal differences between Europe’s Member States; •    implementing suitable payment systems;

•    learning how to provide different delivery options (home delivery or at pick-up locations) and managing product returns;

•    fighting against fraud and rebuilding confidence.
