Monday (8 Dec) was the busiest day of the year for online shopping with an expected £320million likely to have left shoppers’ credit card or paypal accounts.

This figure shows how far online retail has come in a short time with the internet trade body IMRG saying the UK’s Christmas online retail sales could reach £13.6bn this year.

However, large that fiugure may seem, its only a drop in the ocean of the overall Christmas retail market, which is good news for online retailers, as there’s still room for lots of growth.
