Online shopping sets spending records post-Cyber Monday

Posted:

U.S. shoppers are still spending heavily online after a record-busting "Cyber Monday."  In fact, research firm comScore says shoppers spent nearly $6 billion online on Monday through Friday last week, a record.

On Cyber Monday itself, sales reached $1.25 billion, the biggest online shopping day in history. Online sales on Tuesday and Wednesday also broke $1 billion.

ComScore says online sales are up 15 percent to $18.7 billion in November and the first two days of December, compared with the same period last year.

Free shipping appears to be a big draw, applying to 63 percent of sales, up from 52 percent a year ago.
