However, 54 percent of respondents consider online shopping to be secure. Young people in particular perceive online shopping positively. The main reasons why Slovaks make online purchases are speed, comfort and simplicity. Clients choose online stores mainly on the basis of price and advice and among the most frequently purchased items in Slovakia are electronics followed by books and clothes.
