It’s so convenient these days. You can just comfortably curl up in your favorite couch leisurely sipping your favorite drink after the kids have gone to bed and with couple of clicks get all of your shopping done using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. And, you have such a variety of places to choose from! It’s no wonder that online shopping is so popular these days as more and more people are doing it across the globe. Let’s look at some fun facts about online shopping.
Who does it?
You might be surprised to learn that the three main age demographics – Millennials, Gen X, and Baby Boomers – are nearly equally split into thirds for online shopping. And, For instance, nearly 78% of Americans over the age of 15 have shopped online.
But, of the groups, Millennials spend the most – about $2,000 a year – online. It might be a surprise to learn men love to shop on their phones, and they shop online as much as women do.
When are people shopping?
At least 4% of Americans have made a purchase online while they were at a party or other event. Those mobile phones make it so easy!
And the busiest time to shop? 11:25am Eastern Time. Nothing says a fun lunch break quite like the perfect online find!
Cyber Monday has become a big deal in the retail world. Customers spend nearly $200 a person on average on just that day alone. Black Friday what?
How big is the business?
The folks who spend the most money are making middle to upper incomes – over $75,000 a year. Interestingly, Facebook drives a lot of traffic to web stores – nearly 60% of all eCommerce traffic.
Remarkably, online shoppers don’t always push Checkout on the web store they are searching. They want to do all of the research ahead of time but they will then go into a brick and mortar store to ask any final questions, actually check out the product, and then buy. This is called show rooming. As many as 40% of Americans will do this. But, if they don’t like the price, they will leave the store and shop online to get the best price possible. Thanks to comparison feature on the online store, it’s even easier to shop around.
