Nearly a quarter of Americans have pulled back on online spending sprees in the last six months, our annual direct-to-consumer (D2C) report shows.
A significant section of the American public has pulled back on online shopping in the last six months, our latest direct-to-consumer (D2C) report shows.
A quarter (25%) of American shoppers have spent less money online in the last six months, according to a nationally-representative survey of 2,000 of working-age Americans.
While the majority (42%) say they’ve spent the same amount of money over the same period of time, 33% admit to spending more, potentially due to rapidly rising costs across all consumer goods sold online.

Jeremy King, CEO and Founder of Attest, said of the research: “This research finds that a sizable section of Americans have pulled back their online shopping within the last six months, spelling one of the first lulls in ecommerce since the pandemic boom. The outlook for the rest of 2022 sees an expectation from most consumers that they will either maintain or increase their spending but with weaker purchasing power due to inflation.
“Despite this environment, it is clear that Americans have also made D2C brands a key part of their shopping habits and the good news is that nearly a third of US consumers see these brands as more competitive on pricing than their main street competitors. This perception may be an essential differentiator for D2C brands during tough economic headwinds faced by consumers.”
