Internet-based shopping auctions are becoming popular in Slovakia, according to a poll recently conducted by TNS Slovakia agency on the sample of 1,113 internet users older than 18, the TASR newswire reported.

One in three surveyed (34.8 percent) had some experience with this kind of shopping. More than 27 percent of the internet users surveyed have bought goods or services more than once in an internet auction.

Another 34.8 percent said they have not used this kind of shopping but stated they were interested in doing so in the future, TASR wrote, based on the survey. Nearly one respondent in three (29.8 percent) currently has reservations about trying internet auctions.

According to the survey, internet auctions are often used by men under 39. People older than 50, people with basic education and people living in towns and villages with less than 100,000 people are the least experienced in shopping via internet auctions. The most popular internet portal offering online auctions is aukro.sk, TASR reported.
