Christmas 2012 is anticipated to be a strong month for online retailers, according to a survey by Deloitte. The survey has found that 48% of consumers will turn to their computers and smart phones to shop online for their Christmas presents this year.
‘Deloitte’s 2011 Annual Holiday Survey’ is Deloitte’s 26th annual survey. Released on 27th October 2011, the survey revealed that e-tailers who offer their customers free and low cost shipping are set for an even better Christmas, with sixty nine per cent of customers choosing to shop on online stores that offer the low cost shipping service.
“The Internet offers convenience, competitive pricing on products and in some cases, free shipping for consumers.” Says Renee from Cheap Canvas Prints, an online canvas store. “These factors make the internet an enticing first place for consumers to go to do their Christmas shopping.”
An increase in mobile use will be present this shopping period the survey has also found, with 42% of those surveyed say they will use their smart phones to make Christmas gift purchases. Over half also revealed the discount savvy shopper is still very much alive, saying that they will compare and check prices while in store.
The survey has also found that online shopping isn’t just popular with the younger generation, revealing that over the Christmas period in 2011, thirty per cent of consumers aged 45 and older used the internet to make Christmas purchases.
As a company that offers low shipping costs Australia wide, the survey brings excitement for Renee, who says that while retailers of all platforms have seen the ups and downs to sales this year due to the impact of the GFC and economic challenges, Christmas remains an exciting and profitable time.
“We are really ecstatic to hear these statistics, especially as a company that prides itself on our canvas product and offers low shipping costs to our customers – we can’t wait to see what this holiday period brings.” Renee said.
