The people who made an on-line purchase represented about 41% of all adults who used the Internet in 2005.
Over one half (52%) of adult Internet users living in households with incomes of $70,000 or more reported an on-line purchase last year, compared to 32% among Internet users in households with incomes less than $70,000.
Younger Internet users were more likely to buy on-line than their older counterparts. About 44% of users under 45 made an electronic order in 2005, compared with 36% among those aged 45 or older.
Three quarters of adult Canadians who made an order on-line in 2005 reported paying directly over the Internet with a credit or debit card for some or all of their purchases, while about 17% reported paying with a credit card over the telephone.
