UK retail now sees more money spent online than on the high street: study

“UK shoppers now spend less money in shops than they do online, a new study suggests. Some 43% of spending, by volume, takes place in UK stores, while 57% takes place online, according to the Mastercard study. More than a quarter (27%) of all spending takes place using mobile devices, found the study. Some 20% was spent via a smartphone or tablet used at home or at work, while 7% was spending using a smartphone or tablet elsewhere. Almost a third (30%) was spending online using a PC or laptop.”
