On-line sales:how they are going?

by Alan Thornhill

On-line retail sales eased by 0.1 per cent in May, according to the National Australia Bank.

The Bank said this was a significant slowdown on the 1.6 per cent trend growth seen in April.

However the bank added:” We estimate that online sales are now 9.0 per cent higher compared to a year ago.”

And it said that:” In dollar terms, we estimate Australians spent $17.1 billion on online retail in the 12 months to May 2015.

“This level is equivalent to 7 per cent of spending at traditional bricks & mortar retailers as measured by the ABS – excluding cafés, restaurants and takeaway food, to create a like-for-like comparison- in the 12 months to April 2015.” the Bank said.
