Who Will Win the Battle of the E-commerce Holidays?

In an article for Retail Tech News, our Chief International Officer Hannes Ben, has been discussing Singles Day vs Amazon Prime Day. In his article Hannes runs through the factors that need to be considered when comparing two equally important e-commerce dates, from opposite sides of the globe.

There is no denying that Alibaba’s numbers are impressive. On Singles’ Day, it reported a world record for transactions, with 256,000 happening per second in 2017, and over 1.48 billion processed over 24 hours.

Meanwhile Amazon reported a 60% growth of sales year-on-year during its Prime Day event in July.
