Shoppers are expected to make more online purchases this year. Internet spending is projected to rise 17 percent in the year ahead, according to a new survey by a web analysis firm. That's despite a sluggish economy which has hurt sales for many traditional retailers.

The survey finds online shoppers can conveniently look for the best prices and find more options for the items they want to buy.
