Do you do a lot of online shopping? I tend to buy things from Amazon and Ebay like it’s nobody’s business! I guess I’m not the only one because according to a new Australian survey, more and more guys are shopping online and the average value of online purchases by men is more than by women.

Here’s what the survey found: Between 2007 and 2011, the average male increased his online spending by one-third, from $180 a month to $242. In the same time, women reduced their spending online from $179 a month to $165.

Researchers believe the difference is caused by the fact that women are more likely to want to try before they buy, especially clothes. Where men on the other hand buy more gadgets and tools online which they are confident with.

Do you shop online? If so where is the biggest place you do most of your shopping?
