And 49 percent said they shop using international platforms. In Latvia, the rates stand at 62 and 55 percent respectively, and 46 and 52 percent respectively in Estonia.

8 percent of the Lithuanian residents who took part in the survey said they came across fraudsters when shopping online. The share stood at 4 percent in Latvia and 6 percent in Estonia.
