Interest in online purchasing is growing strongly in Colombia. Visitors to online retail platforms in the country reached 7.08mn in August of this year, according to comScore (Nasdaq: SCOR) figures.

However, with the number of online banking users reaching just 2.55mn in Colombia as of August, many individuals use the internet to research products online before buying offline.

Some 76% of Colombian internet users have researched a product online before buying offline, according to a recent study by market research firm The Cocktail Analysis and CCCE.

The most popular category for online purchasing in the country is the travel sector. Of those who have purchased an airline ticket in the past 12 months, 63% did so online.
