Holiday E-commerce Sales up 4% in 2009

According to ComScore, the online purchasing behavior monitoring company, E-Commerce Sales Rose 4% this holiday shopping season over last year which is a wonderful holiday gift for online retailers.

According to ComScore's calculations for the full holiday shopping season, $29.1 billion was spent online, marking a 4% increase versus the same period last year.

We can attribute this vast increase in online sales to a variety of reasons, from free and expedited shipping promotions topping the list to a slew of snowstorms that kept people warm and cozy and committed to shopping indoors.

Whatever the reasons may be, we hope that this trend persists with numbers continuing to rise through all of the seasons and urge folks to take advantage of all the fabulous perks that go hand in hand with online shopping, not only during the winter holidays, but all year round.
