Cross-border Shopping: A Look at Some Trends
Posted on January 9th, 2015

Research from PayPal and Ipsos shows that cross-border shoppers (those for whom more than 10 percent of their online spending is cross-border) spend approximately twice as much as consumers who only shop domestically. Their analysis of the online and cross-border shopping habits of more than 17,500 consumers in 22 countries found that cross-border shopping is most prominent in Austria, where 83 percent of online consumers shop internationally; Israel (82 percent); and Australia (75 percent). International shopping is relatively rare in China, where only 26 percent of online shoppers reported making international purchases, though 52 percent of China’s online shoppers say they plan to begin or increase cross-border shopping in the next 12 months.
