Online retailers Jungle.com and Gameplay.com announced last week that their operations were going from strength to strength.
Steve Bennett, founder of Software Warehouse and chief executive of Jungle.com, issued a trading statement for the online retailer which launched two months ago. The statement revealed the company had achieved sales of £2m so far.
About 100,000 users have registered, with 36,000 buying products from the site.
"Sales are running about double our original forecasts, and this is just the beginning. There are a vast number of internet companies starting every day and the number of people buying online is going through the roof," Bennett said.
Another successful online firm, Gameplay.com, had to make a statement to the London Stock Exchange last week after its share price surged 25 per cent in the course of a morning.
The statement revealed: "The board of Gameplay.com notes the rise in its share price and wishes it to be known that it is currently in negotiation to acquire a number of companies. However, there can be no guarantee that these negotiations will result in the completion of an acquisition."
The online games retailer is also about to embark on a multimillion pound Christmas marketing campaign. An industry analyst said: "The online sector is booming. Jungle's sales look pretty good, but then with the figures included from Software Warehouse, it's difficult to put them into context - we don't know the proportion of new customers. It has also put millions of pounds into marketing this site."
