That’s a rise of over 8% on the previous year.

Around 15% of all non-food goods in the country are now bought on-line. That’s according to a survey by Swiss Post, the Association of Mail order companies and market research firm, GfK Switzerland.

Electronic goods are the most popular items. The research suggests people like the wide availability and price transparency.

The trend is only likely to increase – especially with goods from China.
