Preparing for the Holiday Rush -- Cyber Monday Facts Released in TrueShip's Newest Guide

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - TrueShip (http://www.trueship.com) -- the leading provider of ecommerce shipping software (ReadyShipper) and automated returns management solutions (ReadyReturns) -- has just released a new guide that entails all the current Cyber Monday facts, complete with year-over-year comparison dating back to 2012.

As the holiday shopping season gets fully underway, a lot of shoppers and retailers are gearing up for what is anticipated to be the healthiest spend ever during this time period. Major mediums like Internet Retailer are predicting that e-retail will surpass $300 billion in spending this year, a new record altogether for ecommerce.

Think back to 2013, and statistics shows that the total Cyber Monday haul hovered around $2 billion. Fast-forward to the present day, and predictions are being made that year-over-year growth will surpass 25%, setting a new holiday shopping record that will be tough to beat.

As shoppers become more spatial in their behavior, retailers must now accommodate for webrooming and showrooming, mobile and desktop shopping, as well as social media, digital coupons and more.

This is, of course, notwithstanding the notion that most shoppers are discontent with having to make their way through the hordes of people, much less wait in long lines at brick and mortar retailers during the holiday shopping season.

As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, many new Cyber Monday facts will soon come into fruition. In TrueShip’s newest guide, a wide range of these current facts and past trends are revealed, complete with an illustrated infographic.

“As the holiday shopping season commences, new records are about to be set,” explained Michael Lazar, Director of Online Marketing at TrueShip. “Our newest guide helps retailers better assess their strategy as we near the biggest online shopping day of the year, so they can make the most out of it by knowing the pertinent Cyber Monday facts well in advance.”
