2002 E-Commerce Holiday Wrap-Up            

 

BizRate has tallied the numbers for the 2002 holiday online shopping season and found an astounding 40 percent increase over Q4 2001. Fourth quarter online sales in 2002 rang up $17.44 billion, bringing the yearly total to $47.98 billion — a 34 percent increase over 2001's total online sales of $35.87 billion. There were 358.6 million purchases online in 2002 — up 37 percent from 261.7 million orders in 2001. According to BizRate, fourth quarter growth was driven by:

·          Convenience — with six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, consumers began shopping in November from the comfort of their homes.

·          Value — the sluggish economy motivated shoppers to bargain-hunt and take advantage of free-shipping incentives.

·          Women — females accounted for 60 percent of the e-commerce sales, compared to 1998 when they were only making 39 percent of the online purchases.

Spending measurements revealed that Monday, December 9, 2002 was the peak shopping day, racking up $367 million in sales, followed by Monday, December 2 and Wednesday, December 11, accounting for $366.2 million and $364.6 million in spending respectively.

"All in-all, this was a buyers' market," said BizRate.com president and chief executive officer Chuck Davis. "Consumers were heavily promoted to, with lower prices and more free shipping offers. Retailers needed to have a very white Christmas and offered a record number of promotional deals, thereby bringing a record number of consumers to shop online."
