Online Shopping - 20 years on

Did you know that the first ever online purchase was made in the USA on August 11 1994 – a Sting CD costing $12.48 (10.12€)?  Now, twenty years on, OFCOM statistics show that the British are the highest spenders per head in the world.

Though the average consumer in the UK did not buy online until as late as 2005, the British spent a whopping £91 billion (115,5€ billion) online last year.

In research carried out by Shop Direct, over 95% of us now shop online, with one in four making a purchase at least once a week.

 The top selling products are, unsurprisingly:

  • Books (64 per cent),
  • Clothing & accessories (60 per cent),
  • Music & entertainment (56 per cent),
  • Electronics (54 per cent) and
  • Holidays and travel (50 per cent).

More interestingly, shopping (and associated browsing!) starts at breakfast  and ends at bedtime and beyond: more than a quarter of us shop in bed!  This takes place either via PC or laptop but 1 in 5 use a tablet and 1 in 10 use their mobile phone.

So, if you are a regular online browser or shopper, make sure that you have in your bookmarks or favourites.  As the business directory online in Spain, you can find all the shops and services that you need in a simple, easy-to-use format.  The site is fully optimised for PC, laptop, tablet or mobile phone making it clear and visible whatever device you use – it’s so easy!
