Alibaba reportedly surpassed more than $ 38 billion in sales Monday night, and images are starting to emerge showing the intense repercussions of the world's largest 24-hour shopping event.
During the first hour, retailers raised an estimated $ 1
The Chinese online store has already surpassed Amazon Prime Day's disc and then some.
Although Amazon has not released official sales figures, the retailer raised an estimated $ 5.8 billion during Amazon Prime Day 2019, according to analysts.
While Alibaba's annual online shopping event is comparable to Black Friday or Cyber Monday in the US, the retailer consistently brings in more money than other worldwide retail competitors.
As Alibaba's record-breaking shopping day is winding down, workers have reportedly worked around the clock to keep up with the intense demands of e-commerce and shipping. The dealer allegedly uses high-speed trains to keep track of deliveries, and e-commerce plant workers worked overnight to keep up with demand.
