In the video, Martin talks about the role of the Spanish Association of eCommerce and Magento’s bright future in the Spanish market.

    Cool interview..  A bit short though..

    Great to hear some news and views from Spain especially as I live in the country.  With my appalling lack of español, I guess some stuff just whizzes on by!!  grin

    Roy there is also huge EXPAT market in countries such as Spain with the language being the main barrier for some.  Having a product like Magento certainly is a huge help when it comes to catering for both markets.

    In my very humble opinion, the potential in Spain is huge, however the hard part is getting persons/clients/business to believe in E-Commerce.  Most of what I have seen has been poor in terms of design and structure, which I think detracts from great work of some other companies that are now profiting for having an online presence and store.

    @mikeinspain - work is actively being done by different associations with a stake in the growth of eCommerce in Spain. It’s exciting to see their passion and commitment to move things forward. I very much agree in the potential and look forward to seeing the growth.

    Great interview Roy (agree it was a bit short). It is nice to see the multi-language support.

    Keep at it!
