Save time with e-commerce

Research conducted by the Toluna Harris Interactive Institute for Fevad has revealed that the majority of French people believe that e-commerce is a way to save time. E-commerce has emerged as the preferred solution for consumers, and this survey tells us that it saves them time and that they also see it as a way to connect with others.

More and more French people recognize the advantages of e-commerce, as 92% of them answer in the affirmative to the question "Does e-commerce allow you to save time? This is even more true among 25-39 year olds, CSP+ and frequent cyber-buyers, where this figure reaches 95%.

The French are increasingly interested in finding a work-life balance, and this study reveals that e-commerce can save them a lot of time.


Save time with e-commerce

Surveys show that e-commerce saves us valuable time and most people spend it with family or friends (54%). The 25-34 and 35-49 year olds are even more likely to do so (59% and 61%). We can therefore say that e-commerce has a positive impact on sociability! It allows them to carry out cultural or leisure activities offline for 39% of them. 

Parisians and 15-24 year olds are at the top of those who take advantage of it the most to do more cultural and leisure activities offline. About 21% of respondents say they use their free time to focus more on their work or studies. This trend is particularly pronounced among young people aged 15 to 25, more than half of whom say they use the time they save through e-commerce to work. People can now spend less time shopping and more time relaxing and enjoying themselves with family and friends.
