Tmall and Taobao Sees $3 Billion In Sales On “Double Eleven”

During yesterday’s “Double Eleven” online shopfest, two of China’s biggest sites, Tmall and Taobao (both owned by Alibaba Group), beat out all US e-tailers by themselves, seeing sales transactions worth RMB 19.1 billion (US$3.043 billion) during the 24-hour promotional period. That makes Tmall and Taobao’s Double Eleven sales worth more than double America’s entire Cyber Monday shopping spree, which brought in $1.25 billion in 2011. With Cyber Monday in the US growing at only about 22 percent per year, it’s unlikely that the next one, on November 26th, will see American consumers outspend their Chinese counterparts.
