Mobile and click&collect are accelerating UK e-commerce growth

Mobile and click&collect are accelerating UK e-commerce growth | Digital surroundings | Scoop.it

The report shows that, compared to total online sales, which rose 18% year-on-year in December to £11.1bn, mobile devices now account for 27% of UK e-commerce sales and 6% of all retail. 
 

The authors of the report attribute the switch to mobile shopping to the widespread availability of easy-to-use and cheap tablet computers, which is lowering the barriers to entry. People who are not comfortable with computers are engaging more with tablets due to their greater tactility.

 

The report also points out that the development of click-and-collect services has accelerated the switch from the high street to online, with a quarter of online orders now collected by custom3ers rather than sent to homes.
