64% of Americans’ Shopping Budget Is Spent In-Store, 2017 | BigCommerce & Square

E-Commerce & Retail | USA

96% of all Americans have made an online purchase at some point in their lives and 80% have done so in the month previous the survey. Online shopping became just as popular as in-store, with 51% of Americans indicated that online is their preferred way to shop. But this doesn’t go hand in hand with data of their shopping budget as 64% of Americans’ shopping budget is spent on in-store shopping, compared to only 36% for online shopping.

Millennials and Generation X are more likely than other generations to shop online. Parents and women also are slightly more likely than non-parents and men to do so. Metropolitan residents – who live in cities with population from under 250,000 to over one million inhabitants – are more adapted to online shopping than other US inhabitants.

Despite all this, in-store shopping still dominates the majority of all Americans’ shopping budget.
