Online fraud remains a big concern

The balance of the respondents,  43.13%, said they did not buy goods online because they were wary of fraud, and many in the provinces did not know how to use the internet.

Main reasons given for shopping online were the convenience with around-the-clock service, home delivery and the large selection offered.

The majority of respondents purchased products online once or twice a month.The average bill in each purchase was in the range of 501-1,000 baht. They liked to buy from domestic suppliers and preferred to transfer money to sellers’ accounts.
