Spaniards lead the way in online purchases
The Spanish are shopping more online than their European neighbours, by up to two or three times, according to a report published by Infografia which analyses the impact of the pandemic on consumption habits. The report also shows that the majority of Spaniards have changed their attitudes to e-commerce as a result of the pandemic. Almost half of respondents (47%) stated that they now felt more comfortable shopping online to in person, which has led to 58% increasing their purchases through this channel. Over half of online purchases are made using smartphones, but this does not imply a lack of interest in protecting their data online. In fact, 58% stated that they pay greater attention to secure online payments systems than they did a year ago.
