As card usage seems to be increasingly driven by online shopping the recently published Global Online Shopper Report commissioned by WorldPay is worth a read. According to this report Global e-shoppers spend on average 22% (UK average: 25%) of their annual outgoings on goods and services online, shop for 5 hours a month (UK average: 6), watch TV whilst shopping online (global: 46%, UK: 51%) and make the majority of their purchases at 20:40 (UK: 20:05).
Unsurprisingly, Amazon was the most popular website for buying goods online, with 43% of consumers shopping on Amazon in the last three months. In the UK, this figure was 90%. eBay was a close second with 33% globally and 57% of UK respondents.
