Biggest ever online shopping spree

PayPal has revealed the Christmas period was Australia’s busiest ever for online shopping.

PayPal did not announce much much money was spent, but did say there was double-digit growth in the amount of online transactions over the Christmas period compared to 2011.

PayPal spokesman Adrian Christie said today “It’s been the biggest online Christmas for transaction volume,”

“The week commencing December 5 (2011) was the biggest week we’ve seen at PayPal Australia in regards to processing secure payments.”

Mr Christie said roughly 70% of online purchases were made with Australian stores.
