eBay say that 2022 is presenting a very different Black Friday, with the rising cost-of-living and environmental concerns being front of mind for many shoppers.
Last week in the run up to a different Black Friday, the evening of Tuesday 22nd November was the busiest period in terms of site traffic, suggesting consumers were been scouring the site and planning what they wanted to purchase in advance in order to be more considerate about their spending. Throughout November eBay have also seen a significant surge in people searching for ‘refurbished tech’ as they explore their choices in terms of both price and waste.
eBay research found that 23% of people were hoping to shop for Christmas this Black Friday, and this has been reflected across the best performing categories and items. eBay have also seen a 204% uplift in “stocking fillers” this month, and Black Friday has shown shoppers with smaller budgets have been capitalising on offers for popular smaller gifting items, like the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser from the eBay Certified Refurbished Hub.
Across Home and Technology, the hugely popular Dyson hair products and vacuums have been making their mark in the top 10 best-selling products. Refurbished Mattresses and iPhones have also been popular – suggesting people are making use of discounts to make serious savings on those high-ticket items.
