About us

Every now and then there is foreign visitor investigating our blog or forum. To make life easier, I´m making a small explanation what this Osta Ulkomailta!-thingy is all about.

Finland is expensive country. According to eurostat Finland is most expensive euro-country and second when comparing eu-countries (2011). Awerage wage in finland is little above 3000 euros per month, but heavy taxes and high prices keeps real incomes low.

This all has led to situation where we Finns buy more and more goods from foreign webstores because they are cheaper than Finnish stores. Here are some figures from year 2014.  Both foreign and domestic online markets were nearly 10 billion euros. In 2014 1.7 billion euros was spent in foreign webstores and services.

That amount is still increasing, but information about webstores is hard to find. And that is why we are here. Osta Ulkomailta! is first website that offers customers a clear platform for sharing their experiences whatever good or bad they are. Our site has been online over five years and is visited nearly 300000 times per year.

Are you searching growing markets for your businesses? Do you think your webstore is reliable, fast and cheap? If yes, then consider Finland as your next market. Don´t hesitate to contact us about your webstore or sharing your thoughts on our forum. We are here to help customers and your business as well.
