Alibaba Singles' Day sales hit $12 billion in first hour

Post by phuketrichard »

Building new malls in PP is a mistake!!!
* Singles Day sales hit $1 bln mark in 1 minute, 8 seconds
* Alibaba event is akin to Black Friday and Cyber Monday
* Shopping festival raked in $30 bln in 2018

HANGZHOU, China, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Inc said on Monday that sales for its annual Singles' Day shopping blitz hit 84 billion yuan ($12 billion) within the first hour, up 22% from last year's early haul of 69 billion yuan.

Akin to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the United States, Singles' Day has been promoted as a shopping fest by Alibaba Chairman and CEO Daniel Zhang since 2009, growing rapidly to become the world's biggest online sales event.
