Today, online shopping will surpass $1 billion

Black Friday ain’t looking so dark for online retailers.

According to data collected by Accounting-Degree.org, this will be ecommerce’s second billion-dollar Black Friday — and Cyber Monday (whoever coined that term: get out of the 90′s) will see more than a billion and a half in sales.

Analysts expect Android and iOS devices to be popular with online shoppers this year (duh), and spend per person is likely to add up to nearly $500.

Zoinks!
