UK web stores continue to do well in the run up to Christmas, with Amazon.co.uk once again dominating proceedings, according to the latest figures from IMRG and Hitwise.
Amazon.co.uk is followed by Argos and Play.com in second and third place respectively. Apple fell from third to 10th place, which is surprising given the huge interest in the iPad and iPhone 4 both released this year.
Ticketmaster and Game benefited from seasonal and timely releases, according to the survey, and boosted their standings as a result.
"A reunion tour on the scale of Take That has provided a real boost for Ticketmaster, propelling it into the top 10 for the first time," said James Roper, chief executive at IMRG.
"Game has also seen a large rise in the charts due to the release of the next instalment in the hugely successful Call of Duty series and Microsoft's Kinect technology which is a very exciting development for gamers."
Robin Goad, director of research at Hitwise, added: "As Christmas approaches we would expect to see certain retail sites jump in the rankings, including electronics companies, mobile providers and toy retailers."
Recent figures from Capgemini UK show that UK shoppers are spending about £1bn more a month this year than they were in 2009.
Companies that use a multi-channel approach are increasing their sales much faster than pure e-commerce businesses, the study found.
An estimated £3.1bn was spent online through multi-channel retailers in October, compared to £2.1bn at online-only retailers.
