The proportion of businesses placing orders via the internet has steadily increased over the past three years. During the year ended 30 June 2012, placing orders via the internet was reported by 55% of all businesses.


The proportion of businesses placing orders via the internet increased with each successive employment size range, from 48% of businesses with 0-4 persons employed to 81% of businesses with 200 or more persons employed. This trend across employment size ranges is consistent with previous releases of these data.


Businesses in Information media and telecommunications and Professional, scientific and technical services were most likely to place orders for goods or services via the internet (both over 70%). By contrast, Agriculture, forestry and fishing had the lowest proportion of businesses placing orders over the internet (37%), followed closely by Transport, postal and warehousing and Accommodation and food services (both 39%).
