Alibaba's Singles Day Sales breaks the record with more than $38 billion in sales
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba set a sales record on Singles Day, the world’s largest 24-hour shopping event.
Gross merchandise value, a figure that shows sales across Alibaba’s shopping platforms, surpassed last year’s 213.5 billion yuan record (nearly $30.5 billion) on Monday afternoon local time and kept rising through the rest of the day.
At the end of the event, GMV stood at 268.4 billion yuan, just under a 26% rise from the figure posted last year. That’s a slower growth rate than the 27% seen on last year’s Singles Day. In dollar terms, the GMV figure was around $38.3 billion.
