The online Christmas sales extravaganza 2016 is probably the biggest day in US internet business history (until Cyber Monday 2017). Sources show that about $3.4 billion was spent on the web. This alone barely prevails over Black Friday web based shopping this year, which got 3.3 billion.
Curiously, individuals spent more on their cell phones on Friday than they did Monday. The shopping extravaganza following Thanksgiving created $1.2 billion from cell phones, contrasting with $1.19 billion on Cyber Monday. As indicated by the reports, 44% of the majority of the retail activity originated from cell phones, 9% originated from tablets, and the rest from PCs. In the event that you do the math, this implies cell phones made up over hall of the movement on these two basic eCommerce shopping days. Plainly the times of eCommerce being essentially a PC diversion are a distant memory.
We’re still waiting on data from other businesses and companies, but Adobe claims that they collected, “anonymous data from 23 billion visits to retail websites.” And they track about 80% of all the transactions that go through the 100 top US retailers.
