Research company GfK used its Consumer Wallet tool to analyze the personal finances of over 180,000 internet users in Spain. For its analysis of the online fashion industry in Spain, GfK only selected fashion chains such as Zara, Kiabi, Pull & Bear, C&A, et cetera. The online fashion sales from big department stores and hypermarkets were excluded. “Because in order to determine the fashion sales of these players, we would’ve needed to cross other data sources.”
