China's Single's Day sales hit US$1.4B in first 2 minutes
FROM:    2018-11-14
China's Singles' Day sales on TMall hit 10 billion yuan (about US$1.44 billion) within just two minutes and five seconds after midnight on Sunday. According to Alibaba, owner of TMall, more than 19,000 overseas brands from 75 countries and regions have participated in this year's shopping spree in China. The e-commerce giant launched the annual online shopping promotion on Nov. 11, 2009, a day celebrated by many Chinese young people as Single's Day. The date was chosen because 11-11 resembles four "bare sticks," a Chinese term for bachelor. Sales of Tmall's first shopping festival totaled about 52 million yuan. Alibaba's Single's Day sales reached 168.2 billion yuan last year.
