Summary

Total Online Retail Sales rose by 19.8 per cent in February, year-on-year, value and non-seasonally adjusted, compared with growth of 12.4 per cent in February 2016. This is the fourteenth consecutive month of double digit growth and up on January’s growth of 13.2 per cent.

February’s uptick was driven by a strong performance in the Non-Store category (which includes mail order and catalogues) with growth of 25.1 per cent, after posting a disappointing growth rate of 10.8 per cent in January. Online Department Stores saw its growth cut almost in half to 10.3 per cent from a strong performance in January when it rose 19.9 per cent.
