Barilliance analysed sales data among 50 UK retailers that use the Barilliance e-commerce personalisation solution and revealed that in the week following the referendum, sales of non UK residents have increased by 30%

Barilliance (, the e-commerce personalisation solutions provider, reports that sales among UK retailers online increased dramatically among non-UK residents in the week since the Brexit referendum on June 23. Number of sessions, conversions and sales increased among retailers, as cart-abandonment numbers dropped.

The strengthening of foreign currencies against the GBP lead non-UK consumers to purchase from UK retailers at a significantly higher rate than usual. Barilliance analysed sales data* among 50 UK retailers that use the Barilliance e-commerce personalisation technology and revealed that:

-The number of sessions increased by 5.9%
-Conversions, whereby a web visitor makes a purchase, increased by 28.70%
-Sales increased by 30%
-Cart abandonment, the rate at which consumers leave a website without completing a purchase, dropped slightly by 1.3%.

Barilliance reports that all of the sites using their technology remained fully-functional at all times, despite the fact that many UK sites fell offline due to high traffic from outside the UK in the 24 hours following the referendum.

*The data was collected from June 23- June 30 and was compared with data from the previous week
