This year, last year’s record was broken by 22%, with sales totaling $1.25 billion!
The significant increase in sales over just one year shows that consumers are gravitating more and more towards making their purchases from the comfort of their home or office.
Here are some statistics:
- IBM’s sales were 33% more than in 2010
- Purchases made through PayPal increased 552% compared to last year
- Although the total does not include purchases made through mobile devices, sales made using iPhones (4.1%), iPad (3.3%) & Androids (3.2%) increased from last year’s 3.9% to 10.8%
It looks like it’s going to be a jolly holiday for retailers! Happy shopping!
