eBay Canada: 45% of the 1,005 Canadians we surveyed will shop via mobile or online this holiday season

    “but there’s currently 1.5 million consumer electronics listed on eBay Canada”. Did she happen to mention what percentage of those items are counterfeit, stolen and scams?

      You as the shopper need to be careful and watchful and go to 100% sellers and read buyers comments before clicking on the BUY button

    So, I followed the source and came across this brief background (See below).

    I wonder what kind of websites was the survey link on (national online study). Were they sites truly reflective of a sample of Canadian shoppers, or were they biased towards shopping/ product websites ?

    Either way, 45% represents a good opportunity… even a smaller figure would.

    “About the survey

    The data featured in this release was conducted by the integrated Consumer, Retail & Shopper Insights Team of Vision Critical. Results are based on a national online study conducted among 1,005 Canadian adults aged 18 or over across Canada on November 9, 2012. The margin of error, which measures sampling variability, is +/- 3.1%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been statistically weighted according to the most current education, age, gender and region Census data to ensure a sample representative of the entire adult population of Canada. “

    They didn’t survey me and the answer for me is NO… I’m sure this survey sample is not an avg sample.

    Just like when they do a survey on here regarding phone platforms. Android always wins by a landslide.
