[…] This infographic, from online coupon aggregator My Coupon Codes, shows the online buying market, illustrating what, where and just how much people are buying online.
The data is based on a 2010 Nielsen survey of more than 27,000 Internet users from North America, South America, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
The study revealed that online reviews are playing an increasingly important role in purchasing decisions; 57% of online respondents consider reviews prior to purchase, particularly for cars, software and consumer electronics; and 40% of participants said they would not even buy electronics without consulting online reviews beforehand.
