Sales up but Aussie online commerce still e-volving – Business Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Posted by exitlanguages
The Australian Communication and Media Authority’s ACMA e-commerce report released this week said 59 per cent of adults bought goods or services online in the six months to April 2011, up from 53 per cent from two years ago.
It also found that while people are still mainly buying from Australian websites, overseas-based sites are gaining in popularity – a move that is threatening traditional retailers.
A total of 53 per cent of people surveyed by the report said they bought most often from Australian websites; a drop of 15 per cent from 2009.
