Jackson said: “We continue to provide a compelling online retail offer to our global customer base with unrivalled value combined with excellent choice across a number of attractive brands, as well as a great user experience across all platforms, particularly mobile, where the majority of our sales are made.
“Our customer offer was further enhanced this year through the growth of Ourpay, our proprietary ‘buy-now, pay-later’ solution, and the launch of Select, our delivery subscription service, which have both been very popular with users. We continue to explore the commercialisation opportunities for Ourpay and anticipate launching the first test with an external partner imminently.
“Through targeted investment, customer engagement has improved with increases in average order values, basket size and order frequency. At the same time, we continue to deliver the integrated inventory solutions and new sales channels that our international brand partners require, which are becoming all the more relevant given the structural shift to online across the retail sector generally.”
