Indian men are 'bigger online shopaholics than women'
Women are usually considered shopaholics and big spenders, but a new survey has found that men spend more per month than women on shopping online.
According to a survey by Gopaisa.com, the first cashback site in India, almost twice the number of men shop online as compared to women, as 60 percent of the orders placed online in a month, are by men.
Aman Jain, Director of Gopaisa.com, revealed that nearly 80 percent of their user base is men, and their average logins are once every week while female customers logins are twice a week.
He added that guys like shopping online while women just check deals and indulge in window shopping.
The research also found that men are comfortable buying everything from pen drive to mobiles and electronics, and mostly daily grooming essentials, online, however, girls shopping habits are limited to fashion accessories and in seldom cases, home decor.
Also, men are actually the biggest secret spenders, as they are more likely to lie about their spending and hide items they have purchased from their partners.
