    The right collocation for 'purchase'?

    Hi there,

    Hi will you please give me the right collocation for 'purchase' in the following sentence?

    '...the parameters need to be evaluated to increase online purchases...'

    "To increase purchases..."

    To increase purchase power/decisions/intentions etc.?

    I was wondering which exact verb I can use with the word 'purchase' itself.

    It doesn't really need anything. It means "to increase the number of online purchases which are made". "Purchase" is a perfectly good standalone noun.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
