Shopify have shared their Black Friday & Cyber Monday weekend results and have had sales of $5.1+ billion from over one million global brands.

Shopify recently announced their record breaking Black Friday but with the added results of Cyber Monday we can see just how successful the events have been for them.

Shopify have also seen a rise in earlier festive shopping with daily total sales increasing 19 days before Cyber Monday, nearly two weeks earlier than previous years. In fact, in the week leading up to Cyber Monday, from November 23 through November 30, sales increased by 84% from 2019.

  1. Another merchant who I work with a lot sent me a FB
    screenshot of his shopify sales in the last month like a 2000% growth the other day and he was doing it all on eBay before….his store is going from strength to strength…better prices of course.

    Think he does a lot through that price spy and managed to get a couple of deals on hotukdeals before the mods decided he was not in the club.
    No Google advertising either.

  2. Wow, $5 billion+ in sales in just one weekend! That’s a GDP of a small country! 🙂

    What’s more interesting is that if we assume that the average Shopify fee is 1%, they made 50 million in commissions! That’s impressive.
