Payments and e-commerce in Slovenia

Discover how Slovenes like to shop and pay online

Between 2022 and 2025, the Slovene e-commerce market is forecast to grow by 6% a year [1]. In a country of just over 2 million, more than one million Slovenes already shop with e-commerce merchants [2]. More than forty percent of online shoppers in Slovenia buy from cross-border e-commerce merchants [3]. The most popular e-commerce category in Slovenia is fashion [3].

In Slovenia, consumers make more than half of digital payments using an alternative payment method, something other than a card [4]. Bank- and credit transfers are the most popular type of non-card digital payment method [4]. Popular online payment methods in Slovenia include the SEPA direct debit system and the country’s own FLIK instant-payments system, [4]. To succeed in Slovenia, merchants must offer consumers trusted, preferred local and alternative payment methods.
