We in PayOnline already feel New Year's Eve peak of sales, at this time turnover of payments noticeably increases. The idea to collect in one post several researches on this subject seemed to us interesting. It would be desirable to begin with the fact that the GFK company in cooperation with PayPal defined trends of New Year's online shopping among 5000 Internet users in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Turkey and the Czech Republic by Computer-Assisted Web Interviewing (CAWI). The main output — purchases on the Internet before New year became already usual for Russians. 65,1% of the Russian respondents at least once purchased gifts online. Only 18,4% never did it. 56,2% of participants of research confirmed that they at least once bought gifts from the smartphone or the tablet.

It was interesting to correlate these data with results of the research Deloitte according to which, the most desired gift Russians count money (48% of men and 55% of women). According to the same data the smartphone and the computer want to receive 33% and 30% of men respectively. On the second place for women in popularity – travel as a gift (48%), perfumery and cosmetics – on the third (39%).
