Alibaba, a Chinese Internet company, earned 91.2 billion yuan ($ 13 billion) in the first hour of a traditional day of sales, Bachelor’s Day, Reuters reports. Sales rose 32% from last year (69 billion yuan).
“Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” in the USA are considered analogues of the Chinese sale. Alibaba has been holding sales day since 2009.
Last year, Alibaba’s Bachelor’s Day raised $ 31 billion. This is 27% more than a year earlier.
It is believed that men in China hate shopping, and you need to buy gifts, because the New Year is ahead. Therefore, they shop mainly on the Internet.
