Alibaba is setting record from time to time. Now, another Single’s Day record has emerged when the e-commerce leader made sales of more than $25 billion in product on the Chinese largest online shopping date.
In its full figure comes 163.8 billion RMB, which is approx. $25.4 billion.
This has become an whooping 39% increase on sales total, last year, which was RMB 120.7 billion ($17.79 billion)> Now it comes nicely on the heels of another breakthrough quarter where Alibaba’s income rose by 61%, credit to its main business in China.
To compare, Alibaba’s Single’s Day pull sidelines America’s largest shopping days. Retailers drawn in a record USD 3 billion on Black Friday, then 3.4 billion USD on Cyber Monday, both were records.

This year’s figures also shows a comeback to growth for Single’s Day (11/11) turnover, a prominent area that investors will consider and Alibaba has to show headway on.
While the rise is actually not as high as the 60% Alibaba realized annually from 2013 to 2015, it went up last year, 32%, which is overwhelming given the measure that the activities has reached today and the growth Alibaba’s business has achieved since then.
The holiday started as an advert for TMall and was initiated by recent CEO Daniel Zhang, who was then controlling the business unit, as an approach to make single people feel more lively, however it has since then transformed into the world’s biggest single shopping date.
This year’s 11/11 kicked off to a quick start with about $7 billion in product sold in its initial 30 minutes of the day alone. Alibaba went further to shoot pass previous year’s $18 billion total after just 12 hours of sales.
Another vital measurement is mobile. Not just a higher figure imply that Alibaba is get to new internet users, but mobile users happen to be more engaged which is clearly a key goal.
This year, Alibaba said 90% of sales were realized on mobile which makes 82% for 2016 and 69% in 2015.
More details on the sales figure and data will be uploaded as it’s released by Alibaba
