Prague – According to a Cofidis survey, more than 90 percent of Czechs would buy furniture, garden equipment, electrical appliances and holidays on the Internet. About 80 percent of people would buy clothes, shoes, food or sports equipment. 44 percent of respondents would not hesitate to get a pet online. Czech customers are more restrained when buying real estate or cars. Even so, more than half would not hesitate to buy them online. The results of the survey among 525 respondents are available to ČTK.

According to the survey, Czechs buy some products and services in online stores quite commonly. This is especially true of consumer goods such as leisure equipment and drugstores, which 97 percent of people would buy online. This is followed by garden equipment, electrical appliances and a holiday that 95 percent of respondents would not hesitate to take online. 91 percent of people would buy furniture in e-shops.

In recent years, food purchases have boomed, which has been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Now 84 percent of people would choose this option. “Online grocery shopping is most in favor of the surprisingly older generation,” Cofidis said. Even a little more respondents would then buy medicines in online stores.

According to the survey, 55 percent of people would order a car online. 56 percent of Czechs would buy a house or an apartment in this way, while in 2018 they were not even half of them.

Czechs also use the Internet to get to know each other. About two thirds of Czechs would use online dating to find a life partner.

According to the Association for Electronic Commerce (APEK), the share of e-shops in Czech retail last year reached 17 percent, an increase of a percentage point year-on-year. Traders are increasingly trying to ensure the availability of goods in brick-and-mortar stores and on the Internet. Thus, a further growth in the importance of online retailers is expected; in 2030, online sales could account for up to a quarter of Czech retail, APEK said earlier.
