The report covers a range of topics related to retail shopping during the holiday season. Here some interesting e-commerce highlights:

The Retailers

■ 66% of retailers surveyed plan to increase digital investment in the next 12 months.

■ Areas of investment include mobile technology, advanced logistics aimed at faster real-time delivery, and enhanced purchase methods such as buy online and pick up in-store.

■ This holiday season, 77% of retailers surveyed expect a 16% increase in digital revenues over last holiday season.

■ PwC expects online shopping leaders to gain a 40% to 50% increase in digital revenues this holiday season.
