The signs, in this case the numbers, are clear – 2012 saw online sales across the globe grow some 21.1% year-on-year to top USD1 trillion. In Malaysia,65% out of 310 Internet users are already shopping online.

These strong numbers are due to the ease of mobile shopping and the increased efforts by retailers to set up and deliver a consistent online shopping experience for their customers.

Exclusive online retailers such as Lazada or group discount site Grouponare mushrooming in numbers, all the more so because online businessesare easier and cheaper to set up without the high cost of having a physical retail presence.
