44% of holiday shoppers last year made an online purchase, a number which is expected to increase this year not only on Cyber Monday but throughout the holiday season.
This is important to retailers because shoppers who shopped online AND in-store spent 25% more during the holiday season on gifts than shoppers who only shopped in-store.
Last year, Cyber Monday saw 106.9 million shoppers visit online retail sites, a 10.8% increase from 2009 (96.5 million shoppers) and a 43.3% increase from 2006 (60.7 million shoppers). Given the growth of Cyber Monday over the past few years it’s possible as many as 120 million shoppers could visit online retail sites on Cyber Monday this year.
