Confidence in online shopping differs in the main regional markets. For example, the “International Communications Market Report 2013” from the UK’s Office of Communications noted rather dramatic variations across EU-5 countries in the share of adult internet users who were nervous about paying for goods online. The UK had by far the highest confidence levels, with 70% saying they felt secure when making online payments and fewer than 10% saying they disagreed.
