Seasonal ecommerce sales continue to break all records
December 17, 2007
So, no sign of the credit crunch deterring shoppers in the run up to Christmas. E-commerce sales continue to break all the records with reports of struggling infrastructures and throttling on load balancers a plenty.
The latest figures from ComScore show that the 10th December was the biggest day of online shopping so far with a total of $881 million spent that day alone. That’s a whopping 33% increase on last year. They’re now estimating total spend to date (this season) of $20 billion.
Still looking good for those of us in online travel. The retail rush usually sets the scene for how keen shoppers are going to be to part with cash for a holiday in January. Let’s just hope there’s no more mortgage/credit horror stories before January!
