Buying activity at top online retailers remained flat in September for a second straight month, according to PC Data Online. Amazon.com, Ticketmaster.com, and Buy.com retained their positions as the top sites with numbers of buyers virtually unchanging from August. Amazon.com retained the No. 1 slot with 1.6 million buyers. Ticketmaster followed with 569,000 buyers and Buy.com was third with 428,000 buyers.
“This hopefully is the calm before the storm — not the calm before the calm,” said Cameron Meierhoefer, Internet analyst for PC Data Online. “Online retailers have become serious about turning a profit and many have discarded steep discounts they used to win over consumers last year. This may be driving consumers to shop around — both online and offline — for the best deal before buying.”
