Standout figures

Likely in part due to the consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak, overall figures have dropped in comparison to last quarter but are still higher than Q1 of 2019.

  • Average Order Values, £ per visit and conversion rates have fallen marginally from last quarter.
  • The % of visits from paid search fell but paid search converted the highest and had the lowest bounce rate, indicating that well-targeted advertising can yield great results.
  • Email conversion decreased by half compared to last quarter, most likely due to Christmas trading.
  • Bounce rates on search were 22.5% which means merchants might need to improve their search results pages.
