Holiday shopping 2012 season is in full swing, and just like previous years, online shopping holds maximum stakes for unlocking Christmas coupons and discounts. The major reasons for online shopping are easy savings, simple-to-nail, hard-to-find gifts, avoiding the silly shenanigans of over-crowded stores, and free shipping services from most retailers.
According to Deloitte's 2012 Holiday forecast, retail sales are expected to rise from 3.5% to 4% over last season, and overall holiday sales are expected to climb between $920 and $925 billion. "Non-store" sales combining online discounts and sales coming from catalogs and interactive TV will show an impressive hike of 15% to 17% as per Deloitte forecasts. Online shopping is a major driver for non-store sales, accounting nearly three-quarters of total sales. A report from eMarketer also estimates remarkable rise of 17% in holiday retail e-Commerce over last year hitting a record $54.5 billion. Online retail 2011 boasted a 15% to 16% rise in sales, and 2012 will be the fourth year in a row reflecting online holiday sales increase year-over-year.
The ease of shopping at a click and attractive sales from retailers are luring consumers to put luxury products on top of the list. As per survey conducted by Booz & Co. 53% of consumers have at least one luxury item on holiday shopping list, up from 41% last year. This survey further adds that almost 62% shoppers didn't have consumer electronics on top of their shopping checklist.
