Singles’Day is just around the corner. This Sunday, on November 11th (11.11) anyone and everyone who want to spend some money will be focused on just one thing – online shopping. In less than a few years (since November 2009.) the Alibaba and its founder, Jack Ma, turned this day into a global shopping festival and definitely a biggest shopping day in whole world. During this day, many offline and online shop owners will hold many discount activities to offer their products and improve their total sales.
Why Singles’ Day and why 11.11?
Singles’ Day (Guanggun Jie in Chinese, literally: “Single Sticks’ Holiday”), also known as Bachelors’ Day, originated from Nanjing University in China. The 11th, November consists of four ”ones” (11.11), representing singles. There are several theories on how the Single’s Day was created, but one of the most popular is the story saying that in 1993, four male students of Nanjing University’s Mingcaowuzhu (“All single men”) dorm discussed how they could get away from the monotony of being single and agreed that November 11th became a day to celebrate with pride and in honor of being single.
Commercial and Economic impact of Singles’ Day
The total sales on Singles’ Day sounds unreal. According to the latest data, more than twice as much merchandise is sold over the 24-hour period than during the entire five-day U.S. holiday-buying spree that begins on Thanksgiving, runs through Black Friday and ends on Cyber Monday. Every year has exceeded the one before, with last year’s sales climbing 39 percent to 168.2 billion yuan ($24.2 billion). That’s on par with the gross domestic product of some smaller European nations. Most of the buying was via Taobao and Tmall, Alibaba’s main shopping sites. Although main shoppers do come from China, in recent years Singles’ Day is going global and this year it’s expected that international sale will reach new high with further promotion through AliExpress (again one of Alibaba’s main shopping sites).
