Life in Lockdown: Record numbers go online for essentials and experiences

Online shopping has outstripped all other forms of spending over the past month, with more than half of European shoppers (57 per cent) saying they are shopping online more than ever and record numbers signing up to virtual experiences like home fitness classes, TV and film subscriptions and online learning during lockdown.

The research from Mastercard revealed that one in three Europeans (30 per cent) are spending more money on virtual experiences, with almost two in three (58 per cent) watching TV or films through an online subscription service, more than a quarter (26 per cent) ‘attending’ exercise classes online and 24 per cent virtually visiting museums and other places of interest. According to the research, the times we are living in have also made us more generous with more than a quarter (28 per cent) saying they have donated to charity online in the last month and 14 per cent donating for the first time.
