CAPE TOWN - An online shopping company expects an increase in online shopping this festive season.

A recent survey shows that more than 90 percent of South Africa's connected shoppers will be doing their festive shopping online in 2012.

This is up by five percent from 2011.

Kalahari.com's Liz Hillock says they predict a busy festive season for online shopping in South Africa.

"More South Africans are shopping via their mobile phones. They realise that in tough economic times, they can come online and find better deals."
