USA online sales climb to record high on Black Friday and Thanksgiving

Macy's credit card processors stop working on Black Friday

Amazon said Friday that Thanksgiving continued to be one of its busiest shopping days, with orders through its app up over 50 percent from a year ago.

The annual dip of 3.6% is a clear reaction to the impact of retailers spreading out offers over the week leading up to Black Friday, when footfall rose by 1.3% annually.

This stronger-than-expected performance was achieved in spite of a number of factors that could have exerted a negative influence on growth, such as Black Friday occurring before pay day this year, and many retailers launched discounting campaigns in advance of the day itself.

The figures suggest that Cyber Monday could have generated £7m more in total sales than Black Friday. It is a season for gift giving, and the increased retail "traffic" in the stores generally gives a boost to most categories-people products or pet.

Adobe projected internet sales would still reach a record $5bn by the end of the night, with online retailers forecast to rake in an additional $6.6bn on Cyber Monday. Discount department stores saw a more notable increase at 64 percent - but at 10,435 establishments by 2016, they have been unable to keep pace with online retailers.

Reports today from online retailers trade body IMRG revealed that online sales in the United Kingdom on Black Friday were up 11.7% on past year. The media has simply grown tired of the Black Friday B.S. As of 10 a.m., sales had reached $840 million, a 17% increase from previous year.

According to online data specialist PCA Predict, UK online sales were up 3% between 11am and 5pm this Cyber Monday compared to past year. Until the user centricity of some retail sites is addressed and improved, the desktop will still have a lead in terms of online buying.

About 69 percent of Americans, or 164 million people, intend to shop at some point during the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday, according to a survey released by the NRF. There's going to be a lot of online shopping. Earlier on Friday, Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette told The Associated Press said he was pleased with the kickoff to the season.

At a Sears in upstate NY, a quiet store greeted 47-year-old Nadine Charles last Friday.

"I like to see what I'm buying".

"I don't find anything good anymore at Sears", said Charles, a nurse with four children.
