The Holiday Season 2019 predications are looking merry, despite market pressures.

eCommerce sales are expected to rocket between 14 – 18% on last year. Meaning, total global digital sales are expected to hit $768B globally and $140B from the USA alone.

Unfortunately, this year shoppers and retailers lose almost a week of holiday shopping. Why? well U.S. Thanksgiving Day is six days later than last year. This places digital teams under greater pressure, as retailers need to achieve higher revenue gains in less time.

So, to help, we have compiled the top facts and statistics to guide you to a very merry rest at the end of a very busy holiday season.
