As reported by Adobe based on aggregated and anonymous data from Monday:
“Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) today released its 2014 Digital Index Online Shopping data for Cyber Monday. Total online sales came in at $2.65 billion, up 16 percent compared to 2013. The top 25 retailers, who each generated $30 million or more on Cyber Monday, saw online sales increase by 25 percent capturing nearly $1.8 billion. Smaller retailers, those generating $2 million or less, grew by five percent. Consumers saw the highest discounts of 23 percent in the early morning hours and more than half (54 percent) of online sales came in outside of normal working hours.”
The folks at InternetInYourArea created an infographic that lists the total spend for the last nine years (ever since Shop.org coined the phrase Cyber Monday in 2005.) You can see how the totals have doubled themselves approximately every four years, so hitting or surpassing the $2,000,000,000 mark in 2014 would be exactly on par with past growth.
Other amazing numbers include 55% of online shoppers were shopping on a mobile device last year, and 426 purchase per second were recorded on Amazon. While we have an idea of the online spend for 2014, how do you think these other numbers will stack up?
