Someone better get Gerry Harvey an aspirin. According to new Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) research, the total value of goods sold by Australian online stores in 2009-2010 was $143 billion.
That figure was up 15% on the previous year, reaffirming that online is now an important retail channel. The other odd statistic? Amongst businesses with an Internet connection, 96.7% use broadband. I hope that remaining 3.3% is companies forced to use satellite rather than still hanging out on dial-up connections.
