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.
