Birmingham, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/05/2015 -- Home shopping company, Betterware, have recently commented on the report released by Barclaycard which reveals that over a fifth of card purchases made by Britons is through online spending.

The increase has come thanks to the ease of access to online shopping, with responsive mobile sites being available on mobiles and tablets, meaning people are spending on the move, or while sitting down to relax and watch television.

Data reveals that 22 per cent of all card spending was online, with an expected increase to 25 per cent to take place this year. Users are shopping to spend smaller amounts, on online stores, food takeaways and booking sites, thanks to the increasingly easy ways to get online and shop with mobile devices.

Under 25s have increased their spending by 27 per cent in the last year, while over 65s have increased spending by 3.3 per cent. The figures are expecting to continue rising throughout the year.

Managing director of Barclaycard, Chris Wood, said, 'Online consumer spending continues to boom as shoppers embrace the value and convenience it brings. Across the board, businesses have realised the potential and are using increasingly sophisticated tools to bring the best of the in-store experience online.'
