That brought the total in the United States to $33 billion -- $53 billion when counting travel, which is the largest single segment among online purchases at 36 percent. Computer hardware comes in second at 15 percent, accessories are third with 10 percent, and office supplies are fourth with 8 percent of total sales. In addition, the majority of purchases were made from work, mostly because of faster computer connections, the group reported.
