NETO: HEALTH AND BEAUTY SHINES ONLINE

Written on the 26 July 2016 by Brisbane Business News

NETO: HEALTH AND BEAUTY SHINES ONLINE HEALTH and beauty retailers are defying all odds, shaping up as Australia's best-selling segment online.

Where physical department stores once dominated, online is now making up more and more cosmetics sales. The sector saw a 70 per cent lift in year on year sales online, according to Neto's e-commerce platform of 1000 businesses.

Retail has been relatively flat across Australia in this period, but online retailers reported a growth of 23 per cent from the January to June period.

Homewares came in second, seeing a 48 per cent growth, while sports and recreation grew 34 per cent.

"Within those categories, we're finding the most successful retailers are adopting an omni-channel approach, where they maintain a physical and online presence, and also sell through social media and platforms such as eBay," says Brisbane-based Neto's chief operating officer Jason Titman.

"Successful retailers are targeting a wide spread of consumers, and meeting them at their preferred buying platform, rather than waiting for consumers to come to a fixed sales platform."

Neto also shared the top five e-commerce sectors, according to the average value of transactions. It's unsurprising that motor parts ranks the highest at $340.86, but health & beauty also polls highly at $284.34 so not only are retailers in that space selling well, but the value of their inventory is high as well.
