New The.nlyst out now

Last year, Dutch people spent roughly 13.7 billion euros on line. That is about 17 per cent of all consumer spending in the Netherlands, and nearly 30 per cent up on the year before. Within the overall increase in the volume of on-line spending, the share of purchases made using a smartphone or tablet went up sharply, to more than a third. And the importance of e-commerce is bound to grow further. The internet serves as a platform for an endless variety of shopping formulas, according to Professor Cor Molenaar in an interview for this edition of The.nlyst.
