E-commerce sales in Spain break new quarterly record

Thursday 20 March 2014 | 11:02 CET | News
Online purchases in Spain registered the highest-ever quarterly turnover of EUR 3.19 billion between April and June 2013, a 20.6 percent year-on-year increase. Data just released by Spain's telecommunications regulator CNMC showed that the number of online purchases reached 45.6 million, 24.3 percent more than in the same period of 2012. The record figures were driven by the tourism sector, with travel agencies and other tourism operators accounting for 16.4 percent of the total turnover in the second quarter, followed by air transport (12.4 percent) and terrestrial transport (4.9 percent).
