The ChannelAdvisor Same Store Sales October results are in and there were a couple of interesting trends that could indicate how the Q4 holiday season is going to shake out.
This figure shows the results for 2009 so far graphically: (click to enlarge)
- Amazon led the pack (as usual) with 61% y/y growth – up from Septembers 55%
- Overall at ChannelAdvisor we saw things pick up overall very nicely from the high single digits to 17% y/y.
- eBay had a slight tick down to 4.73% from Septembers 5.1% – that’s small enough that I don’t think it’s cause for any concern.
- Comscore hasn’t put out their October numbers, but I suspect they will be flat to down slightly.
17 days to Black Friday!
