NZ Online Retail Sales - Update for March 2017

HIGHLIGHTS

• Total online retail spending by New Zealanders in March was up 17% compared to the previous March, continuing the strong growth pattern observed so far in 2017.

• Annual growth in purchases from offshore online retailers pushed through the 20% mark for the second time over the past 12 months. International purchases in March were up 22% on March 2016. Computer, Clothing and Electronic stores accounted for just over half of the year-on-year increase.

• Spending at local online retailers was up 12% on March last year, with food categories and Department/Variety stores again experiencing strong growth. Online momentum is continuing to outstrip that of local bricks-and-mortar stores, where sales grew approximately 4% compared to last March.
