UK's online spending up 40% on last year

Tech Digest news

Last week we reported that the UK leads as the top online shopping nation in Europe.

Another study, by the Interactive in Media Retail Group, showed a growth of 40% in online spending on last year’s figures, at £2.25bn. June’s online figures were ten times higher than for overall retail sales.

Internet spending broke £2bn-per-month in November last year and have not dipped since.

More evidence that we’re a nation of online shopaholics.
