“Internet sales have been growing dynamically and in the first four months of 2008, we recorded more than 100 percent growth year-on-year in the number of orders. Consumer habits have been changing gradually, and the purchase climax has shifted from afternoons to between 7 pm and 9 pm.

“In 2006, we had only about 10 percent of orders in the evening hours,” said Ladislav Csukás, head of Internet Mall Slovakia.

Internet users prefer buying on Sunday, and evening shopping exceeds 50 percent of turnover on that day. Electronics, laptops, digital cameras and house and garden items dominate the goods sold.
