Only 4 pc of shoppers care about next day delivery

New research by HGVtraining.co.uk has found that only four per cent of shoppers surveyed thought next day delivery was important when buying online. 67 per cent were influenced by the price, 57 per cent were swayed by the free delivery option and 26 per cent were looking for a good returns policy.
