The news this morning was full of online cheer. Apparently, the relentless rise of internet shopping reaches a pinnacle today as the busiest day of the year for shopping online. Indeed, probably the busiest such day in history.

3300 purchases per minute will be made today, say Visa, up 12% on last year and which will account for 25% of all Christmas purchases. This is against a backdrop of High Street sales that have seen a 2% decline each year since 2008.

This internet thing… It’ll never catch on 😉
