Alibaba sets record sales on Singles Day
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TRADE on Alibaba, China’s leading e-commerce platform, reached 168.3 billion yuan (US$25.4 billion ) on Saturday’s shopping promotion, up from 120 billion yuan in 2016.

Alipay, Alibaba’s mobile payment platform, handled 1.48 billion payments from around the world, 41 percent more than last year.

A total of 812 million orders were generated in the 24 hours, up 23 percent.

Saturday’s 24-hour online shopping binge is the day-to-day online shopping market in microcosm, and benefits manufacturers, traders and consumers far beyond China’s borders. More than 140,000 overseas brands participated, with 206 countries and regions involved. Consumers came from 225 countries.

Ten million orders were made in the first four hours. A Russian buyer became the first overseas customer to receive her order, a coffee machine, through AliExpress, 14 days earlier than last year.

At least 331 million packages were handled by Chinese postal and courier companies on Saturday’s Singles Day, 31.5 percent more than the same day last year, the State Post Bureau (SPB) said.

JD.com, another e-commerce platform, gained huge profits from the shopping spree, who started promotions at the beginning of this month and reported 127.1 billion yuan in orders.

“Double 11” was first promoted by Alibaba in 2009 and has developed into an annual e-commerce frenzy.
