Summary

Total Online Retail Sales rose by 18.8 per cent in March, year-on-year, value and non-seasonally adjusted, compared with growth of 11.5 per cent in March 2016. This is in line with last month’s growth but more than double the 9.2 per cent growth seen in January.

March’s growth was driven by a strong performance in Online Clothing and Footwear with rose by 27.8 per cent, and Other Non-Food which grew 20.2 per cent. Online Department Stores saw its growth slow for the second consecutive month to 13.6 per cent and was the weakest out of all the ONS categories.

The continued positive growth appears to be driven, at least in part, by higher average basket values through mobile devices for both multichannel and pure play retailers.
