More specifically it's officially the Christmas Shopping Season! Last Friday was Black Friday, and as you're reading this you're probably right in the middle of Cyber Monday. Together, the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales attract over 75% of Americans and nearly 25% of their holiday budget is spent between these two days.
Shopify has a wonderful BFCM live globe that you can hover your mouse over to visualize all the e-commerce orders on their sites.
Send your BFCM acros my way, and then go forth and shop 'till you drop!
