Thursday 24 September 2015 | 11:19 CET | News
Dutch consumers spent EUR 7.96 billion on online purchases in the first half of 2015, an increase of 18.4 percent from a year earlier, according to the Thuiswinkel Market Monitor by GfK. Services accounted for EUR 4.05 billion, up 17.6 percent, and product sales rose 19.1 percent to EUR 3.91 billion. The online channel now accounts for 8.5 percent of consumer product sales, up from 7.6 percent in the first half of 2014. The improving consumer confidence prompted the study's authors to raise their forecast for full-year e-commerce sales to EUR 16.5 billion.
