More than $1 billion was spent on Cyber Monday – which is not
only a 16 percent jump from last year, but represents the “heaviest online
spending day in history,” according to digital measurement service comScore.
For the holiday season-to-date, $13.55 billion has been
spent online, a 13-percent rise from 2009, the service said.
“Cyber Monday was a historic day for e-commerce as we
saw daily spending surpass $1 billion for the first time,” said comScore
chairman Gian Fulgoni. “The online holiday shopping season has clearly
gotten off to a very strong start, which is welcome news.”
