It’s Christmas time again (even though the weather doesn’t show it) and with relatives and in laws visiting, getting ready for the Christmas feast and all of the Christmas parties, it’s hard to find time to get all your presents purchased and wrapped on time.
Lack of time, combined with the sheer hassle of Christmas traditional shopping, (taking hours to find a park, battling the crowds, the perfect gift being out of stock and the Christmas music is pretty annoying too! ), is meaning more Kiwis are doing their shopping in the comfort of their own home.
With online purchases by New Zealanders up 13% from last year and 95% of people stating they would shop on the web for at least some of their festive gifts, there is a clear move towards people shopping online in order to make the most of their available time over Christmas.
Businesses must take advantage of the latest web trends and an e commerce site is not only valuable tool to have at this time of year, it can work all year round. An effective e commerce site combines great design and easy usability and Drupal, the CMS used here at Koda Web is ideal in achieving both.
Not only are we moving towards online shopping, there is also increasing numbers of online purchases being made on phones and tablets, as opposed to the traditional desktop. With the ease of being able to buy wherever you are, whether in the office, on the bus, train or in front of the TV, 35% of New Zealanders intend to use their smartphone to do some of their Christmas shopping. At Koda Web we apply a responsive design theme to all of the websites we develop, ensuring your new site is accessible on any device from any where.
