Online trading, a popular trend

Thursday 31st August 2017

In the last few years there has been a dramatic increase in online sales and a bigger demand from consumers to buy their goods from an online trader. With the constant growth of technology, more and more people are able to access the internet on a wider basis which has led to more retailers focusing on selling over the world wide web.

Much of the UK are starting to convert to online shopping for convenience, at just a click of a button, you can have goods delivered to your door on that very same day and avoid the hassle of high street shopping.

According to reports, last year’s online retail sales was over £113bn, and increase of £18bn from 2015 and shows it’s on a steady increase each year. A lot of this increase was down to the growth of smartphones and the constant development that surrounds its technology, allowing for quick and easy access to the internet.

The introduction of trading platforms such as eBay, Amazon and Etsy, have made it easy for any household to start trading at a moment’s notice. This has given people the option of setting up a small online shop from home, whether your selling your old items or buying and selling stock on a regular basis, it gives more people the opportunity to earn an extra income.
