Online Christmas sales up by a fifth

Online retail traffic is up 20 per cent on last Christmas, according to NetDespatch.

Cyber Monday, the first Monday of December, saw 112 million visits to retail web sites in the UK, it said. 

“However growing confidence in online services and delivery has meant that the second Monday, 10th December, saw a seven per cent further rise with the peak expected to be reached on the 17th.”

NetDespatch provides a processing platform with web-based software tools and services connecting warehouse and order processing systems, such as eSellerPro, Maginus and Magento, directly to the NetDespatch servers. The despatch and delivery data is then forwarded to the selected postal or parcel carrier.
