Once again, our online purchases gave us away. The more we shop online, the more we are considered. So this time, the YuKassa service (a service of the fintech company YuMoney) analyzed: that the number of purchases of goods and services from January 1 to 8 of this year increased by 22% compared to the first days of 2022, and the billing of online platforms increased by 11%.

That is, in these New Year holidays we buy more than in the previous ones. But at the same time, the average purchase receipt decreased by 10% and amounted to 1027 rubles. Therefore, we buy more, but more economically.

– The Russians spent mostly on game items, as well as on educational services and courier services, – said analysts of the YuKassa service.

By the way, about the messengers. This is our most popular expense item. It’s hard to believe, but the number of courier orders from January 1 to January 8 increased by 86% compared to the same period in 2022! Here it is: the effective force of delivery. Why go somewhere to do the shopping yourself, if they bring it to your home? And most agree with this. To confirm the numbers. The number of Russians who used the services of a courier service in the first days of January increased by 54%, the turnover of payments on online platforms with these services increased by 96% compared to the previous year, the check average also increased by 6% and amounted to 5299 rubles.

But we did not live alone as messengers during the holidays. Many people decide to make repairs or organize house cleaning. According to YuKassy, ​​payments for household services from January 1 to 8 increased by 72% compared to last year, the number of payers by 36%, and the billing of online services that provide household services by a 3. 4 %.

– The average bill at the same time fell by 22% and amounted to 801 rubles, – analysts say.

The item where the check for purchases has risen in price is medicine. We also used doctors more actively than last year. He paid 23% more for medical services. The average bill increased by 18% and reached 5849 rubles.

Master classes, advanced training courses and tutoring services, training and educational content are another item of spending during the last holidays. We paid 2.2 times more services this year compared to 2022.

“In addition, users spent 53% more on gambling products than in the same period in 2022, and the number of payers increased by 82%,” reports the press service of fintech UMoney.

Anastasia Sidorina, director of customer relations at the Romir holding, confirms the statistics.

– On the one hand, spending in the New Year season traditionally increases, – says the expert. – It is always noticeable compared to November. But, on the other hand, despite the tendency to save money, this year the Russians still spent much more than last year. Furthermore, spending is growing not for vitally necessary goods and services, but for gifts and entertainment. Apparently, for many, the year was very difficult, and I want to treat myself on vacation.
