SA retailers face 'disruption'

By Lauren Kate Rawlins, ITWeb news journalist.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) this morning released the Annual Global Total Retail Consumer Survey, showing e-tailing is growing fast.

In this year's report, there were more than 19 000 respondents across six continents and over 1 000 from South Africa. The survey revealed the physical store remains top; however, online retail is growing fast as more users become comfortable with using the Internet.

Some of the key results included 14% of South African online shoppers surveyed saying they shop online weekly or more frequently. 53% of the same group say they have intentionally browsed products at a store but decided to purchase online, and 73% say they have browsed products online and then purchased them in-store.
