Hmm, my money is on Alibaba…

Biggest days of two companies. One from America and one from China… (Different days, but both in the last few weeks. And it is the biggest sales of each company for a day like period.)

SAN FRANCISCO — Amazon: Safely back in their office cubicles, Americans let their fingers do the shopping Monday, racking up $6.59 billion in online sales by the end of the day. Cyber Monday topped out at a new online record, compared with Black Friday online sales of $5.03 billion, according to Adobe Analytics. That’s up from the previous record for Cyber Monday, which was last year’s $5.65 billion, a 16.8% increase.

Pretty good, pretty good. I wish I had that money to play with….yet…

But in China…

Alibaba on Sunday tore through last year’s Singles Day sales record, racking up more than $30.8 billion in the 24-hour shopping event. Gross merchandise value (GMV), a figure that shows sales across the Chinese e-commerce giant’s various shopping platforms, surpassed last year’s $25.3 billion record at around 5:34 p.m. SIN/HK (4:34 a.m. ET) on Sunday, and kept marching higher through the rest of the day.

Svetochka and I tried to deal with Amazon and after being ripped off over some auto shocks that came defective, we will never again use that company. We shop Alibaba and or Aliexpress as we prefer and never have issues with quality and or returns…

Alibaba made some moolah, wouldn’t you say?

Interesting thing is all of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales do not equal this one day with Alibaba, from what I understand is Black Friday sales at Alibaba are still bigger than Amazons sales and Black Friday is not a Chinese event…

You think Black Friday shopping in the U.S. is huge? Yes, it is, but it pales in comparison to China’s largest one-day shopping day, Singles Day, a day when single people in China get to celebrate their singleness. And, this year, on November 11, 2018, Singles Day sales reached $30 billion in one day on Alibaba’s platform. Yes, you read that right $30 billion with a “b”. By comparison, in 2017, online sales on the Black Friday weekend, which now starts on Thanksgiving and rolls right into Small Business Sat
