Christmas delivery season starts here

The start of the Christmas shopping season is about to take off online, according to new research.

MetaPack’s eCommerce 100 Tracker, which analyses the despatch records of cross-section of 100 MetaPack customers, found that last year the online shopping peak started in September, following a small drop in August.

Between September and October online deliveries rose by 28%, while between October and November they rose by a further 42%. November and December saw deliveries rise still further, by 29%. In total, says MetaPack, between September and December, deliveries rose by 133%.

Patrick Wall, chief executive of MetaPack believes that this year, strong sales up to Christmas will stay high into the New Year, boosted by the January 4 introduction of the VAT increase.

That, he expects, “will see people going online from around midday on Christmas Day to avoid paying more tax.”
