Online shopping

Online shopping has increased across the country

“The number of online purchases is rising in all regions”, announced José Pedro Antunes, from INCoDe.2030, according to data from the Digital Economy Study.

He highlighted the need to look at new business models, namely with regard to the creation of websites so that people can purchase products, goods and services.

With regard to e-commerce, according to the Digital Economy and Society Index, Portugal rose more in this regard than the European average.

Given the increase in interest in digital commerce, João Pedro Antunes explains that “for people to buy, companies have to invest” in websites.

The data indicate that young people are the ones who buy the most over the internet and that most of the objects purchased are related to clothing, meals and cosmetic products.
