Session 3: Conversion for Growth

In addition, the business activities of e-wallets also grew strongly. However, according to VECOM estimates, the rate of cash payment (COD) for retail purchases of goods online remains high, about 80%.

Regarding e-commerce index (EBI) ranking among localities, Ho Chi Minh City continues to lead the EBI 2021 ranking with 67.6 points. The second place is Hanoi with 55.7 points. However, the average score of this year's index is 8.5 points, reflecting the huge gap between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with 61 other provinces. Overview of the period 2016 - 2020, the EBI gap between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and the rest of the localities is virtually unchanged. This fact demonstrates that many localities have not yet exploited the opportunities offered by e-commerce, and e-commerce businesses are slow to expand their business and grow sustainably.
