It is close to the big day and many people are panicking that their gifts might not arrive in time for Christmas.
This, along with the backlog from Black Friday and Cyber Monday, means millions of packages could end up either missing or delayed this Christmas.
While it is wise avoid the last minute chaos by finding out all the last posting dates for your favourite stores - delays are inevitable at this time of year.
The UK is one of the top countries for shopping online.
Hannah Maundrell, editor in chief of money.co.uk , has explained what you should do if it all goes wrong.
“It’s so frustrating if you’re left waiting for a parcel that doesn’t arrive," said Hannah. "But don’t waste your energy getting angry.
"You’ve got rights and you have options and that puts you in the driving seat.
“Don’t waste time contacting the delivery company about anything other than rescheduling a delivery.
"If there’s a problem with your order it’s the retailers fault and they’re the one that has to put it right.
"This is the case whether your order is missing, late or damaged. If they don’t step up then make a formal complaint and ask for compensation for inconvenience and any costs you’ve incurred.
"If you’re not satisfied you can turn to the Retail Ombudsman for an independent look at what went wrong.
“If you need a delivery by a certain date then you need to specify this when you buy, or you won’t be able to complain if it doesn’t come - your other option is to go for a delivery option that guarantees it’ll arrive on time.
"A cheeky way to hedge your bets is to order the same item from two companies – as long as the item isn’t personalised or perishable you should be able to cancel one and send it back for a full refund within 14 days, just make sure you don’t get stung twice for delivery costs.”
