Source: Roy Morgan Single Source (NZ) January 2011 – December 2011 n=12,023.

Pip Elliott, Client Services Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“The most popular item bought online over the last 3 months in New Zealand is Travel (tickets/accommodation), which 14% of New Zealanders aged 14+ have purchased online.  This is followed by Books, Magazines, Newspapers and Shows, Movie tickets and Events, both categories of which 10% of New Zealanders have purchased online in the last 3 months.

“Also amongst the top 10 items purchased online in the last 3 months are women’s and men’s clothing.  Interestingly, 14% of those who purchased women’s clothing online were men, while 32% of those that purchased men’s clothing online were women.

“Purchasing online rather than in-store gives consumers 24/7 access, the privacy to purchase products where they want (provided they have internet access) and the ability to look at a variety of options at their own leisure. With more activities and products becoming more frequently available online, purchasing online is likely to increase.”
