Growth in Surabaya
Surabaya, the capital of the province of East Java, is the second largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta. The city has seen significant developments under its current mayor Tri Rismaharini; future plans include smart-city implementation as well as development of the Jakarta-Surabaya fast train. The local economy in Surabaya has also flourished, as evident through the newly opened Australian consulate general, indicative of the fact that international business is on the rise in the ‘city of heroes’ as it is known.
In terms of e-commerce, Surabaya has also seen significant improvements. Research published in 2017 by Google Indonesia and the German market research company GfK revealed that Surabaya now has the highest percentage of people purchasing online with 71%; followed by Medan with 68% and Jakarta with 66%. The research also found that citizens of Surabaya spend more time on online shop sites and apps, with 5.8 hours daily followed by the Bogor-Depok-Tangerang-Bekasi greater area (Bodetabek) with 5.2 hours, and Jakarta with 4.7 hours.
Besides the presence of major national and international players, e-commerce in Surabaya is enriched by a variety of smaller independent online shops, which are often found operating through social media channels. Their rise is complemented by Indonesians preferring simplicity in purchase processes, which has made online purchases part of everyday life for Indonesians. This is further driven by the shift in how Indonesians pay for their online purchases, from preferring cash-on-delivery to bank transfer, as mobile banking development has drastically improved access to cashless payment systems.
