Growth in online spending offshore +21%, local +11%, says Marketview BNZ Online Spending Report.

The Marketview BNZ Online Spending Report for January shows total online spending +15%, with international merchants continuing to gain share, thanks in part to the exchange rate.

Online sales in the Computer & Entertainment Media categories again stood out again, following a strong performance in December.

Clothing sales were up nearly 20% on January last year, with both local and international online clothing merchants seeing double digit growth.

Overall, growth in online spending with local retailers continues at a faster rate than spending using electronic cards in physical stores.
