The pandemic ushered us into a life of digital living. Even though people are no longer quarantined, they still remain in the habit of spending money online to get whatever they want.

Barstool Sports via Curve recently revealed in a tweet their list of top 10 websites that people have spent the most money on in 2022. While Amazon topping the list comes as a surprise to no one, OnlyFans landed number two on the list. The platform has risen immensely in popularity in a matter of few years.

Popular shopping websites eBay, Target, and Best Buy land on number three, four, and five respectively. The most shocking inclusion on the list is Long John Silver’s, the seafood giant. One fan even joked on Twitter that they’re “the Arby’s of seafood restaurants.

Long John Silver’s closed in over 300 locations in the second half of the 2010s until 2019. They also suffered heavily in 2020 with corporate staffing cuts. However, they made a turnaround, as evidenced by their position on the list.

Home Depot, Walmart, Etsy, and Kohls took the seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth spots respectively. The digital commerce landscape is one of the most stimulating sectors in the economy, and people aren’t going to stop spending online any time soon. Curve is an over-the-top banking platform and digital wallet. The list comes from a collaboration between Barstool Sports and Curve.
