Online retailers win USA holiday shopping

Online retailers win USA holiday shopping

The company measures 80 percent of all online transactions from the top 100 US retailers, more than any other technology company, and uses its proven predictive model powered by Adobe Sensei to forecast online sales and trends.

Retailers have been attempting to lure shoppers in with deals for more than two weeks now in an extension of the traditional one-day Black Friday event.

Today, US shoppers are getting smarter when it comes to overcoming Black Friday stampedes and riots.

Black Friday exceeded expectations in mobile sales with a record $1.2 billion in revenue, up 33 percent from a year ago, according to a report from Adobe Digital Insights, indicating just how much consumers could spend on Monday. But she said she shops online throughout the holiday season for the convenience more than the one-day-only deals. MasterCard Advisors SpendingPulse, which tracks spending on all kinds of payments, estimated that spending over the four-day weekend will be up 3.8 percent, with online sales up by double-digit percentages and in-store sales up in the single digits.

Hot off the heels of Thanksgiving weekend, Google has revealed the latest data on the impact of mobile shopping searches during Black Friday.

Bree Colley, 30, said she planned to go to Columbia Mall in Missouri on Friday with her mom in their yearly tradition.

So, in which brick-and-mortar stores did consumers shop?

The Mall of America, the largest USA shopping center, and other malls chose to stay closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. However, there was a 4.2 percent rise in consumers who shopped online and a 3.7 percent drop in shoppers who purchased in a store.

Target Corp, meanwhile, is offering 15 per cent off nearly everything in its stores and website for two days: Sunday and Monday.

The retail software firm Vend, which tracked 1,500 independent shops across Britain on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, said that sales were up by 22 per cent on the same weekend a year ago.

Eric Denker and his wife, Jalen Denker, of Irvine, take advantage of sales to buy suits for business school interviews at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Black Friday, Nov. 25, 2016.

. While the promotions offered during this period were probably preplanned and thus baked into the retailers' sales plans, it could prove a troublesome dynamic for them if ultra-deep discounts end up being needed all season long to get people shopping. In total for the two days, online spending was $5.27 billion, which is a 17.7 percent increase compared to the online revenue from the same two days of a year ago.

But while he got some good deals, Dannenberg said Black Friday shopping just isn't what it used to be. The offer was too hard to pass up for the 34-year-old, who now isn't working because she is on kidney dialysis.

Spending during the overall season - November and December - is expected to grow 3.6 percent to $655.8 billion, the NRF estimates. "In a flawless world, everyone would sell at full price, but as consumers and as buyers all of us would like to get a deal on things we buy".
