Savvy online shoppers are realising the enormous benefits that can be had with coupon shopping.
(PRWEB UK) 15 January 2013
More Australian retailers should be joining the online coupon revolution on the back of soaring online sales figures in the last year, according to the owners of leading Australian-based coupon website, i love coupons.
The release of the National Australia Bank Retail Sales Index this week highlighted the phenomenal rate at which Australians are taking to online shopping with online retail sales growing 27 per cent in the 12 months to November.
According to i love coupons' Managing Director, Louie Van Essen, the figures pave the way for the evolution of an even more dominant online shopping world.
"While the figures released this week prove that internet shopping is gaining traction, with $12.6 billion spent online in the last year, Australian online retail is really still in its infancy," Mr Van Essen said.
"Retailers and shoppers are entering a very interesting phase in the online retail market, with major uptake still set to come.
"There are a lot of successful dedicated online stores that are already offering great online deals, like fashion retailer Boohoo, and technology and electronics giants Dell and Kogan, however we are now also seeing a lot of traditional, bricks-and-mortar retailers increasing their online presence and improving their service within this area.
"At the same time, savvy online shoppers are realising the enormous benefits that can be had with coupon shopping.
"For example, shopping with a Boohoo coupon from i love coupons, customers not only get access to the great range of clothing and accessories available on the Boohoo online shop, they also get great savings at the online checkout, just by accessing our unique Boohoo coupon code.
"Getting a The Iconic coupon, Kogan coupon code or any of the countless other technology-based coupons we have on our website is just as simple, entitling customers to discount deals on the latest goods - and most importantly, all our coupons are completely free,” he said.
With the level of online sales increasing year-on-year at this rate, i love coupons' CEO Dominic Gluchowski said they are expecting the number of online coupon discounts to also flourish.
"More retailers are seeing the value in offering even greater discounts to online shoppers, not only through an increase in their customer base, but also by increasing the volume of online sales," Mr Gluchowski said.
"I love coupons' sales have increased 30% year-on-year to November, reflecting the trend seen across the board with online retail performance.
"At the end of the day this is great news for consumers, who reap the rewards of unbelievable savings, while shopping at their own convenience; anytime, anywhere.
"Genuine savings are there for the taking - choose from thousands of coupons from top retailers, like a Boohoo coupon, or a Kogan discount code from i love coupons and get the best savings, negotiated by our leading coupon website to bring the most exclusive deals to web shoppers."
