Paypal sees surge in New Zealanders spending online

From Checkpoint, 6:23 pm on 24 April 2020

New Zealanders are buying up large on board games, home entertainment, education materials and alcohol.

Liz Lord is the Director of consumer behaviour at PayPal. She has been tracking what we have been buying while cooped up at home.
