36% of UK population do all of their shopping online

Figures released today show that over a third of UK (36%) shoppers choose to do the majority of their shopping online, with the average spend per month rising from just £56 to £113 in the past decade.

It was also discovered that one in every ten people admit to buying something online every day, with a quarter of those planning to spend even more online throughout 2013 than they have before.

Dominic Baliszewski, telecoms expert at broadbandchoices.co.uk said, “It is no surprise to see online shopping becoming the favoured method for so many consumers. Broadband has revolutionised the way we browse and buy goods and services and the best deals these days are usually found online.

“While the British high street will always be an integral part of the shopping experience, we expect to see a continued increase in the amount of money spent online during 2013, and continued variation in the devices used for these purchases.”
