Business owners are being encouraged to expand into ecommerce solutions, with record numbers of consumers preferring to shop online.
New research has shown that over 50% of UK consumers now prefer to shop via ecommerce solutions over the internet, rather than visiting a traditional bricks and mortar store.
This preference for ecommerce solutions is on the rise, with 55% of those surveyed admitting that they are doing more shopping online in this year than in 2017. The average consumer now makes an online purchase six times each month. This is higher in the 25-34 year-old age bracket, who shop online eight times a month.
These statistics could be linked to the recent worrying reports of a decline in footfall at Britain’s high street shops. In March and April 2018, there was an ‘unprecedented’ 4.8% decline of visitors to physical shops.
Making purchases online is now seen as a more convenient way to shop, allowing busy consumers the ability to buy from anywhere in the world. Whether shoppers are at home, at work or even during a busy commute, ecommerce solutions allow businesses to make sales 24/7.
