Ecommerce in Ireland peaked last Sunday (December 5th) after a leading retailer found that a gift was bought over the internet every 20 seconds on its website.
eBay in Ireland estimated that 54 per cent of all of Ireland's consumers would be looking to do their Christmas shopping over the internet this year.
Furthermore, the Irish retailer predicted that around 100,000 people were going to purchase goods from its online site, a sales increase of around 33 per cent compared to last year.
Ruth Szyszkowski, a spokeswoman for eBay.ie, said that whether it is clothing, computers or consumer electronics, people are heading online to make greater savings.
"Christmas doesn't need to be compromised this year and Irish shoppers are keen to take the hassle out of Christmas by buying online for great value deals delivered to their door, in plenty of time to get under the tree!" she said.
Last month Nielsen reported that one in six UK ecommerce website visits would end in a purchase after 80 per cent of the UK online population visited an online store in August.
