Web metrics firm comScore has said that UK and French online retailers appear to have done well over the Christmas shopping period, and were ahead of their German counterparts.

Bob Ivins, EVP of European markets at comScore, said, "Online retailers appear to have done well in the UK and France this Christmas. German activity was impeded by the long-running rail strikes as well as the more general lack of consumer confidence that has been reported in the country."

In the UK, Amazon sites saw the most consumer traffic, taking up 9% of retail category visits.

Apple followed with 6% of all retail visits, said comScore. Home Retail Group, owner of multi-channel retailers Argos and Homebase, had a 5% share.

Tesco took 4% and Play.com saw 3% of traffic to make up the top five, said comScore.
