Lo­cal re­tail­ers ben­e­fit­ing on­line

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS NATION -

AUS­TRALIANS are shop­ping on­line more than ever and mainly from lo­cal re­tail­ers, ac­cord­ing to new re­search from Aus­tralia Post. Its sec­ond an­nual In­side Aus­tralian On­line Shop­ping Re­port draws on all of Aus­tralia Post and StarTrack’s cus­tomer and de­liv­ery data, show­ing on­line shop­ping sales soared 11.5% in 2016 and do­mes­tic re­tail­ers ac­counted for 79% of the to­tal on­line spend. Aus­tralia Post’s gen­eral man­ager Ben Franzi said price, range and con­ve­nience were the three main rea­sons that con­sumers shopped on­line, and why growth rates re­mained strong.
