Online shoppers to spend millions on Mega Monday


Known as “Mega Monday”, today is expected to be the busiest internet shopping day of the year with online shoppers expecting to spend £22 million an hour - according to shopping comparison website Kelkoo.

A staggering £537 million is expected to spent today as the majority of British consumers will have just received their final monthly wage before Christmas.

In addition, the heavy snowfall which has hit much of Britain, as well as the strike on the London Underground, is expected to boost the number of online shoppers.

Credit company Visa said it expects to deal with 3.8 million card transactions during the day.

Steve Perry, spokesperson for Visa Europe, said: “Shopping online is now a natural part of the gift-buying process for consumers and a key part of Christmas sales strategy for retailers.”

However, shoppers are urged to be wary when purchasing items online as online fraudsters look to cash in on Mega Monday.
