“Higher spending in e-shops are proof of the growing interest of Slovaks in online shopping, which might offer the comfort of one’s home and low prices, as well as a wide offer,” said Kamil Demuth, manager of the heureka.sk site to the SITA newswire.

The most popular goods sold via e-commerce in 2011 were clothing, accessories and shoes, books, household appliances, PCs, TVs, and videos, followed by cosmetics, perfumes, mobile phones and PDA appliances.
