55% of women who shop online use the internet to buy clothes, spending an average of £40 a month.
Only 33% of male online shoppers use the internet to buy clothes.
More people are spending additional money online because it offers a wider range of choice and convenience.
Despite consumers tightening their purse strings, online shopping continues to grow.
How you deliver small or large parcels is as important as what you sell and a quarter of shoppers are now paying an upfront fee for unlimited delivery.
