We report on interesting analysis from eBay and Deloitte in today’s InternetRetailing newsletter. The study puts a value on the impact online shopping has on the high street. Regular readers will be unsurprised first, that retailers with an omnichannel approach don’t feel the impact too hard, and, secondly, that those who spend via mobile as well as other channels are the UK’s biggest retail spenders. Find out more in the two stories we have on the report, and in our video interview, How online boosts offline sales.

We also report on the long-anticipated launch of M&S’ new website, on news that Poundland is considering ecommerce, and on an 18% boost for online sales in January.

Today’s IRX 2014 preview looks ahead to the presentation by Mark Cody of Tesco in the mobile and mobility conference, while we also have news of City Link’s new two-hour delivery slot service.
