My first thought about the 90% figure was that it was quite a high percentage to be believable, but as usual with statistics, it wasn’t qualified.
In all likelihood, if it was a survey directed to Paypal users, then it is believable.
Mind you with all the “can I cancel my order please” due to Son, daughter, baby, cat or dog accidentally pressing the buy button then it may well be 90% of Britons.
Let me assure you I asked the same question to paypal pr. They assure me 90% of all Britons is what they mean.
I think they mean 90 % of adult consumers with net access.
Friday and Saturday nights after 9pm are very good for us, alcohol is no doubt a big factor in this though as most of the “my cat walked over my keyboard” style BS excuses for no longer wanting it also happen at w.ends.
The 90% thing is fluff. 18% of the country are under 14.
Complete nonsense claim considering the official figures suggest that 17% of households don’t even have an internet connection.
Exactly Paddy, that is what I thought. According to a BBC story last month, 80% of UK households had had an internet connection at the end of 2012. So 90% doing their shopping at the end of 2013 is very unlikely.
Paypal have a vested interest, perhaps we should look for other sources?
22% of the UK population is over 60. So Paypal claims 100% of all Brits under 60 will buy online and 50% of those over 60.
