25 most visited Indonesian online shopping & ecommerce sites in 2015 – reviews and comparisons


Selamat Datang! Last year I wrote a post about Top 25 most trafficked ecommerce websites in Indonesia. The post quickly went viral and became one of the most viewed posts with most of traffics from Facebook first and later from Google. I’m also coming to Indonesia soon so wanna have a refresh view about the market. So now I’m writing a new updated one. This year review also includes my quick review on how did each site change, increase/decrease it’s ranking, compare with it’s competitors and there might be few reasons if I know from the insiders’ sources. Freel free to update me in the comment if you have some more points to share.

The result is based on Alexa, for sure it’s not totally correct but  at least we can trust it 80-90%, especially when we’re comparing sites in the same country. For a quick overview, the top 7 sites are mostly dominated by global sites: Google, Facebook, Youtube, Blogspot… The only local site makes it ahead of Kaskus is Detik, a news portal. After reading the post you will definitely have an overview about the ecommerce market in Indonesia.

  1. Kaskus.co.id – Alexa 8
kaskus_forum_jual_beli_by_reggiThey call themself: “Kaskus is a home of The Largest Indonesian Online Communities. People come here to share inform…More ation or interest, to buy and to sell. Unite Indonesian through a social platform”.
Last year Kaskus has a big change with changing CEO from a youngest one Ken Dean to one of the highest profile CEOs Sukan Makmuri, formerly VP of Internet Banking Technology of Bank of America. Kaskus on the way of shifting from an online community to an ecommerce platform since 2009 with marketplace, KasPay… From some of the “newest updates” one year ago Kaskus already has around 25M unique visitors every month. Though growing strongly but actually Kaskus is going down one rank from 7 last year to 8 now. Kaskus also has a 318 rank on a global scope.
2. Bukalapak.com – Alexa 13

Bukalapak-1 The marketplace marks an impressive move from 43 last year to 13 at the present, even surpassed the most talked guy Tokopedia at pos 18. From last year numbers, Bukalapak  oversaw more than IDR 500 million (US$43,000) in transactions in its online shopping marketplace on a daily basis.
3. Lazada.co.id – Alexa 15
lazada-indonesia-company-profile-1-728Lazada Indonesia has jumped 15 position from 27 to 12. It’s also the best startup training school in Indonesia which provides several hot startups including MatahariMall, VelaAsia, … So we can see new Lazada Indonesia CEO every year as long as the Indonesian market is still hot.
4. Tokopedia.com – Alexa 18

After bagged $100M last year Tokopedia improves it rank from 28 to 18. Not bad, but surely we’re watching to see what is the next move of Tokopedia, definitely Tokopedia’s William doesn’t want to lag behind anyone in Indonesia  in terms of either traffics or revenue.
 5. Olx.co.id – Alexa 19Tokobagus-berganti-Nama-Menjadi-OLX-Indonesia
Last year the two arch-rival classifed websites Olx was at 15 and Berniaga at 23. Now they’re already merged together and maybe the bigger and fatter body moves slower so now Olx gets the 19 spot.

Complicated relationships: Tokobagus -> OLX – OLX + Berniaga = New OLX


6. Klikbca.com – 23
Klikbca is the most popular banking payment gateway in Indonesia. It belongs to one of the largest banks BCA.  Last year KlikBCA was at 13 position, this year it is probably running as good as last year but the other players are direct B2C and C2C players so easier to get more traffics.

7. Elevenia.co.id – 34
This is a marketplace joint venture between Indonesian telco XL Axiata (70M+ subscribers) and SK Planet, owner of one of the largest marketplace in Korea. Elevenia derives from ‘eleven’ and ‘dunia’ (dunia means ‘world’ in Bahasa Indonesia). It follows the same business model as 11street, the largest marketplace in Korea. Last year Elevenia was at 70th.
8. Aliexpress.com – 52
Launched in April 2010, AliExpress (www.aliexpress.com) is a global retail marketplace targeted…More at consumers worldwide, many of them located in Russia, the United States and Brazil. The platform enables consumers from around the world to buy directly from wholesalers and manufacturers in China and have access to a wide variety of products at wholesale prices. AliExpress is a business within Alibaba Group.
AliExpress is one of  the fastest movers from 136 pos to 52 jumped 84 positions.
9.  Amazon.com – 53
Last year Amazon was even not in the top 300 Alexa Indonesia. So the more growing market the more benefit Amazon has got. This might also mean the number of credit card users of Indonesia has dramatically increased within one year.
10. Blibli.com – 55
the B2C site Blibli is owned by GDP Ventures, a subsidiary of Djarum Group, also owner of Kaskus (No.1) and shareholder of KlickBCA (23)
11. Zalora.co.id – 59
After one year the fashion site Zalora from 123 now might be happy with 59 pos.
12. Alibaba.com – 75
It was from the ranking of 224 in 2014 to 75 at the moment. The ecommerce giant from China is surely the most challenging competitor for any Indonesian B2B players. We’ll see if Alibaba will aqquire any startups here.
13. Bhinneka.com – 80
The 21 years-old company seems getting old and running slower so get a rank 80 after the 62nd post last year.Promo-Diskon-Tiket-Pesawat-Traveloka.com-Bank-Mega
14. Traveloka.com – 83the hotel and flight site also one of the fastest growing startups in Indonesia from the post 155 last year to the top 100 right now. It has been running dramastically after got funded from Rocket Founder Fund. Traveloka also uses lots of offline & TV ads to increase it brand awareness.
The more important thing is Traveloka now grow stronger and bigger than Tiket, the older competitor, Tiket now has 134 pos while last year it was still ahead of Traveloka. Traveloka is one of the first Indonesian startups quietly go regional, but let’s see what can Traveloka do out of it’s hometown in the most competitive ecommerce category.

15. Paypal.com – 109
What is it? I dont know!

What is it?

Paypal was at 74 pos in 2014 so maybe now Indonesia has more online payment options, more credit cards and switching their choices.
16. Rumah123.com – 111
Indonesia‘s largest property portal. More than 250,000 properties listed from more than 8000 ag…Moreents all over Indonesia. Rumah123 scored a 111 ranking from out of top 300 last year.
17. Agoda.com – 120
2014 Agoda was at 110 so now it still remains the same while seeing Traveloka is cutting into it’s share.
18. Jne.co.id – 122
PT. JNI Mitrajaya was established as a distributor and logistic providers company located in Surabaya and Malang which always strives to provide the best services with quality products to its customers.

We distribute broadline quality products such as culinary products, baking ingredients, beverages, tissues with dispenser, to cleaning products to help our business partners such as hotels, caterings, office buildings, and hospitals. “
Not sure why a logistic company can make into the top site, maybe it’s clients have to connect to it’s website for tracking services?! Any comment?
19. Ebay.com – 126
The online aution giant stepped back from 90th position. It’s a surprising finding.
20. Tiket.com – 134
Tiket.com provides online ticketing solution for hotel, flight, train, event and concert.Tiket also improved it’s ranking from 163 to this current pos, but it’s rival Traveloka did much better to 83rd pos.
Founded around two years before Traveloka, but Tiket has had a more conservative view on getting funding and another reason that Tiket has more categories to do than Traveloka so this might be it’s disadvantage. Or Tiket growth will be more sustainable than Traveloka’s? Let’s see!
21. Qoo10.co.id – 138
A fashion site. Qoo10 from a noname player last year now marked it’s move into the top players.
