Sales hit new high as online merchant growth continues apace

At a time when much of the news for businesses is doom and gloom, at Secure Trading we’re delighted to report that our latest sales figures have revealed that we continue to go from strength to strength.

Businesses are seizing the opportunity to trade in the online environment, the latest figures from the IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index revealed in January showed that shoppers in the UK spent a total of £6.8 billion online during December, equivalent to £111 per person and sales were up by 7% on November and by 25% on December 2009.

Similarly we’ve some great figures in our business as our own sales are continuing to rise year-on-year. Sales for 2011 have risen month on month and our sales figures for March this year have risen by more than 135 per cent compared to January 2010.

We’re confident that this sales trajectory will continue through the year, as businesses realise the importance and need of having a trusted secure online payments provider.
