Mega Monday

Today Monday the 10th of December is set to be the biggest single day for online shopping in the entire year. It's expected a massive £370 million pounds worth of orders will be placed to day alone, contributing to the estimated 5.6 billion pounds which will be spent online before the 25th of December; 50% more than last December.

Monday is traditional always the busiest day of the e-commerce world as people place there orders from work after either having discussed a purchase over the weekend, been unable to find a product in the shops on the weekend or having finished hunting around for the best bargain.

It's an interesting observation that online sales are increasing at an enormous rate for Christmas even though last year a large number of websites suffered huge problems when they weren't able to cope with the demand. Which lead to over 500,000 presents not being delivered on time for Christmas.
