PayPal: 90% of Brits will buy online this Christmas

According to PayPal, this Christmas almost 90% of Britons will do some of their shopping online.

The survey, covering shoppers in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia and Singapore, shows that Britons shopping online and with a mobile device this Christmas will do almost half their festive shopping on their smartphone or tablet, compared with just 35% internationally.

One of the major reasons people in the UK like shopping online so much, who knew, is the ability to do it 24 hours a day. One third of shoppers say they buy in bed and 46% favour shopping between 7pm and 1am.
