Online Retailers Court Last-minute Shoppers
This year online retailers are hoping for a last minute online push. According to an article on Yahoo News, e-tailers are particularly appealing to men who get to clicking at the last minute. With the cut-off for by Christmas shipping looming, some people are still waiting to click and buy. According to tracking firm comScore Networks luxury goods and jewelry sites were the fastest-growing Internet shopping category last month and buyers are more and more comfortable buying online. Among the websites hoping for a little deadline magic is diamond dealer Blue Nile which last year had a man buy an engagement ring 14 minutes before the shipping deadline for Christmas. With Christmas on a Sunday this year, many online stores are offering shipping by Christmas as long as you order on Friday morning.
