Online holiday shopping season concludes with record spending

comScore Inc released its final update of holiday season e-commerce spending for the 2007 holiday season (November 1 – December 31). $29.2 billion was spent online during the holiday season, marking a 19-percent gain versus the same period last year.

“This year's online holiday shopping season has concluded with a record $29 billion in spending, a 19-percent gain versus year ago,” said comScore Chairman Gian Fulgoni. “Ultimately, the softness in the growth of online retail sales during the first ten days of November proved difficult to overcome and prevented the season's growth rate from reaching our forecast of 20 percent. However, the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas -- another measure of the strength of the holiday season -- experienced a healthier 21-percent growth rate.”

Top 10 Online Spending Days of the 2007 Holiday Season:
“Green Monday” (Monday, December 10) was the heaviest individual spending day of the season with $881 million in sales, followed by Tuesday, December 11 ($819 million) and Thursday, December 6 ($803 million) “Cyber Monday” (Monday, November 26), which represents the first major spike in online spending activity during the season, ranked as the 9th heaviest day with $733 million.

Fastest Growing Product Categories in 2007 Holiday Season:
Video games, consoles & accessories was the fastest growing online retail category, jumping 129 percent versus the 2006 holiday season, with popular consoles like Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation and games like Halo 3 driving strong sales in the category. Furniture, appliances & equipment (up 67 percent), event tickets (up 24 percent) and consumer electronics (up 23 percent) also experienced above average growth.
