20% Increase in Average Order Value, 8% Increase Overall in Holiday Sales, ShopVisible Data Paints Picture of Happy Holiday Shopping Outlook for Online Retailers

ShopVisible, winner of the 2012 CODiE Award for Best Electronic Commerce Solution and the recent winner of the American Business Bronze Award for Most Innovative Technology Company, today announces data that gives retailers insights into the early picture of the 2012 holiday shopping season:

The data, drawn from over one billion in sales and over 100 online retail sites, reveals:

1) Based on growth trends revealed from an analysis of all client site traffic over the past 6 years, ShopVisible projects that the trend shall continue, with order volumes increasing 8%-10% for most online retailers.

2) The company also found that substantial increases in holiday shopping activity began in September—earlier even than previous years, which was often cited as Halloween.

CNN recently posted a story discussing retail expectations of a 4% holiday spike, according to the National Retail Federation.

“We work with online retailers of all kinds, like Loehmann’s, Tempur-Pedic, MovieMars, and London Fog, —many of which do a significant portion of their sales in Q4. Our data shows trending patterns in when people are shopping, and also how early, and how much they are buying and spending. A healthy percentage of the growth can also be attributed to increased traffic from mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones and the attribution of impact that traffic is having resulting in increased website sales,” commented Sean Cook, CEO, ShopVisible.

It cannot be overseen or regulated by any one administrator, like a government or bank. Currently, there is no government regulation on them which also means there is no government safeguards over them. Although many are looking at Bitcoin to put money into, it would be wise to proceed with caution. Regular central banks are watching it and deciding whether or not to make them illegal (Criminalize them) and therefore make them worthless and eliminate them as competition. ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are something most have no idea as to what it means and how you utilize it. Where is the "Stamp of Approval" or "Stamp of Legitimacy" on some of these Bitcoin websites (how do you know you are not dealing with a scammer?)
