Australian retailers are being encouraged to focus on e-retail opportunities and embrace online coupon offers as a way to further improve on promising online sales from 2012, say founders of the Australian-based coupon directory, i love coupons.

The National Australia Bank Retail Sales Index released this week revealed a remarkable jump in Australian online retail sales, up 27 per cent in the 12 months to November compared to the previous year.

Co-founder and Managing Director of i love coupons, Louie Van Essen, said the figures proved that internet shopping was rapidly gaining popularity at an enviable rate, however there was still a lot more room for considerable growth.

"While we are seeing a positive shift towards e-retail, with Australians spending $12.6 billion in online shopping over the last year, there are still a lot of opportunities ahead for retailers and consumers to make the most of the digital platform," Mr Van Essen said.

"Compared to conventional shopping, online retail only accounted for 5.7% of Australian retail spending during the year. However the percentage growth in online outstripped that of traditional retail - which makes the future prospects truly exciting for us, our online retail partners and our customers.
"Dedicated online retailers are suitably positioned to offer the greatest discounts for shoppers, like fashion retailer Boohoo, and technology and electronics giants like Kogan, that offer fantastic savings through i love coupons.

"Many traditional, bricks-and-mortar retailers are now also realising the importance of increasing their online presence and improving their service within this area.

"Meanwhile, smart online shoppers are enjoying massive savings from the use of coupon deals available across virtually every shopping category.

"Armed with a discount Boohoo coupon from i love coupons, customers can shop for the latest designer clothing and accessories available on the Boohoo online shop, while getting great savings just by heading to our website and using the unique Boohoo coupon code with their purchase.

"Fashion, health, travel, even the latest computers and electronics - get a Kogan coupon, The Iconic coupon code or any of the other leading technology brands offering free discount coupons through i love coupons to save on technology purchases.

"It is that simple. We offer a completely free service so that online shoppers can have access to quality retailers and great savings," he said.

With retailers experiencing increasing online sales levels, i love coupons' co-founder and CEO Dominic Gluchowski said they are expecting the number of online coupon deals to also skyrocket.

"The growing popularity of internet shopping brings with it an unrivalled network of incredible savings for online purchases, unlike anything the conventional shopping world has been able to match," Mr Gluchowski said.

"More retailers are seeing the value in offering even greater discounts to online shoppers, not only through an increase in their customer base, but also by increasing the volume of online sales.

"To deliver the biggest savings for online shoppers, we are constantly negotiating new and better deals with established online retailers as well as new-comers to the e-retail world.

"i love coupons' sales have increased 30% year-on-year to November, reflecting the trend seen across the board with online retail performance.

"And at the end of the day this is great news for consumers too, who reap the rewards of unbelievable savings from a larger pool of online retailers, while enjoying the benefits of the simpler online shopping experience.

"Genuine savings are available across an entire range of products - from Boohoo coupons for the latest fashion trends, or a Kogan discount code to save on electronics purchases - i love coupons is home to all the best deals on the web."
