| Top Ten Reasons to Shop Online|
Sun Dec 7 2008
|There's nothing like shopping from the comfort of home, and new research proves it! Nielsen-Online conducted a survey to see why shoppers buy online. With the current economic downturn, there is an increased focus on price this year, with 53 percent of respondents citing price as a reason to buy online, compared with 46 percent last year. |
But consumers continue to cite convenience more than price as the primary value of the channel, with 76 percent of respondents citing the ability to shop 24 hours a day, and 74 percent citing time-saving for why they shop online.
Nielsen-Online recently fielded the survey from November 6-11 among approximately 1,300 online shoppers who did online holiday shopping last year and/or plan to do so this year. The survey revealed that consumers will continue to shift their purchases online for convenience, time saving and competitive pricing this holiday season.
