PYMNTS Daily Data Dive: Cyber Monday Spectacular!

This year’s Cyber Monday stats are here.

Adobe Digital Insights found that Americans had already spent $540 million in the wee hours of Monday morning (between midnight and 10 a.m. EST). A cool $205 million of that total came from mobile purchases. Nearly 40 percent of Cyber Monday shoppers said they planned to shop first thing in the morning, with just under 25 percent reporting they’d use a mobile device.

Adobe found that 62 percent of shoppers planned to make purchases on Cyber Monday, up 10 percentage points from this year’s already record-breaking Black Friday. Total Cyber Monday sales hit $3.39 billion before the day was out, a growth of 9 percent over last year.
