Nguyen Van Phuong, in charge of the committee carrying out the 22nd annual Vietnamese High Quality Goods Survey, said the survey this year found that the ratio of people shopping online had increased three-fold from the same time last year.
These shoppers are mainly in big cities and aged 16-25, he said.
High-tech electronics, toys, sports equipment, cosmetics, blankets, drapes, pillows, curtains, beauty care equipment, and stationery and fashion items are the most popular products bought online, he said.
According to many experts, online shopping will continue to expand in Vietnam to gradually replace buying at brick-and-mortar stores.
Efforts to facilitate online shopping, improve online transaction security and customer service and reduce delivery costs are helping boost online shopping.
