October Same Store Sales

November 10, 2009

ChannelAdvisor ChannelAdvisor By ChannelAdvisor

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!
