Americans’ appetite for e-commerce grew again in 2014 with holiday sales slightly exceeding an optimistic forecast by digital measurement firm comScore.
Online holiday sales from desktop computers increased a less than expected 10% after a late season surge failed to materialize, according to comScore.
Survey results released Monday by comScore revealed that the most recent work-week saw four individual days eclipse $1 billion in spending, led by Green Monday with $1.275 billion.
Data released Wednesday by comScore showed that holiday season retail e-commerce spending for the first 42 days of the 2011 holiday season is up 15% year-over-year.
The holiday season-to-date has garnered $24.6 billion in online sales, a 15% increase above corresponding days last year, ComScore reported.
Sears Holdings announced that it will help make customers' "green" go further this Green Monday (Dec. 12) at Sears.com and Kmart.com.
Comscore reported that retail e-commerce spending for the entire November to December 2010 holiday season reached $32.6 billion, marking a 12% increase versus last year and an all-time record for the season.
