"29 percent of people in Lithuania buy online at least several times a month or do so regularly, compared to 24 percent of people over 18 in Latvia and Estonia each," Vaidas Zagunis, head of the retail banking service at SEB, said in a statement.

Also more shoppers in Lithuania, compared to Latvia and Estonia, pick local online platforms and stores, with 67 percent choosing them in Lithuania. 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.
