China 'yet to embrace e-commerce'

From BBC News:

"Chinese internet users are wary of buying products online, a survey of Chinese internet habits has revealed.

More than 75% of those questioned by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said they had never purchased anything online. Only 10% bought regularly. While internet usage is developing rapidly in China, growth in e-commerce has been much slower."

"The research - the third survey of Chinese internet use since 2000 - revealed that web users are predominantly male, under 25, well-educated and wealthier than average.
China now has more than 100 million internet users, making it the second largest internet market after the United States."
