Early 2020 Black Friday eBay numbers

No primary category set

Just hours into our first ever Black Friday at home, early 2020 Black Friday eBay numbers reveal it’s shaping up to be the busiest ever with 2 items from the Black Friday hub sold every second (between 7am-12pm), as bargains fly off the virtual shelves.

Millions of deals are currently live on eBay UK, and whilst some savvy shoppers started filling their baskets at the crack of dawn, many Brits skipped the usual slot of shopping during the commute and instead made the most of their work from home lie in, with sales spiking at 9am.

Early Black Friday eBay numbers

From a LEGO Harry Potter toy, to the Nintendo Switch and refurbished Dyson vacuum, eBay reveals the items flying off the virtual shelves so far this Black Friday:

  1. LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig
    – 1 sold every 11 seconds
    – NOW £23.95 WAS £34.95

  2. Nintendo Switch
    – 1 sold every 4 seconds… until it sold out. Stock was refreshed at 10am and sold out again!
    – NOW £239.99 WAS £313.99

  3. Apple 10.2″ iPad (2020) 32GB
    – Space Gray- 1 sold every 19 seconds
    – NOW £459.00

  4. Refurbished Dyson Cyclone V10 Wireless
    – 1 every 24 seconds

  6. Lenovo Smart Alarm Clock

“The events of this year have driven an unprecedented shift to online, and this trend has continued into the Black Friday period as consumers look to capitalise on the best value deals. Already, the Nintendo Switch has proven to be one of the most popular products for the festive season, selling out in record time, and at peak, selling 1 every 4 seconds.

We’ve seen a sustained surge in demand with consumers preparing for Christmas earlier than ever, and this morning we’ve seen a distinct shift in shopping patterns. With people largely working from home, we saw the first sales traffic peak on eBay UK at 9am, whereas last year we saw traffic hit much earlier, with commuters browsing deals on their phones on the way to work.”
