Cyber Monday Sales Up 24%, IBM Says

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Online retailers should have something to be pleased with. According to a Reuters report, IBM noted on Monday that web sales during Cyber Monday had increased 24% compared to the same time last year.

It’s important to note, however, that the report arrives before the conclusion of the prominent sales day. Final statistics will arrive later.

Meanwhile, other statistics unveiled showed that 22.4 percent of site visits were due to mobile devices.

According to Tech Crunch, Cyber Monday hauled in $1.25 billion just last year. IBM previously detailed statistics related to Black Friday last week, noting an increase of 20.7% compared to 2011. IBM calculates the data using its Digital Analytics Benchmark.
