    Great figures,
    My biggest day so far was Thursday, Wednesday was very good, Friday and Saturday down, (mall shopping) Sunday was almost back to Wednesday.
    We still have a few good days ahead of us.
    I've already made as much this morning as this last Saturday but still far from $670 million in online sales.
    Do we now how much of the $670 million is from affiliates?

    Yep... I have broken a few personal records this last week... in traffic and sales...!!!

    It seems that people are learning that it is easier to shop online during the holidays... They can get their Christmas shopping done in the AM without even showering or leaving the house... Who needs to waste gas and time fighting the crowds in the B&M's anymore.... who needs it...?? LOL...... Personally I can't STAND going to the "MALL" during the Holidays... It is just too much of a hassle and Waaaay Too Time Consuming........

    I say we gut all the malls in America and make them warehouses for Online merchants... LOL....

    A quick look at my amazon account. I'm not checking everyday.
    Sunday 2006/12/17 conversion is my best since I work with them: 19.64% on over 300 sales + third parties
    I wish I had such conversion for all my merchants. And I'm not really pushing amazon sales. I don't know what kind of deadline (or promotion) they had on Sunday.
    My average (year) is 4.63%

    My record best day of all time was Cyber Monday this year. Since then sales have been fantastic, but nothing has come close to that day. I think a lot of it had to do with the bricks and mortar ads that went out over the Black Friday weekend. My traffic soared as people searched for items they read about in the ads.

    It was the last day to use their Free Super Saver Shipping offer and still have the items delivered before Christmas.

    Thanks, it was a darn good promotion. They should do that more often.

    $670 million? That's amazing! With all that money just floating around out there it's a wonder to me how so many are in poverty or stuck in situations they hate because they can't better themselves. I wish we had a more just world, I really do. However congrats to those who clearly did so well!

    Nice figures there Mike, yesterday I landed my largest single sale commission, last week went fairly well but I have noticed traffic slowed since 16th on most of my sites as I guess most people have done their shopping now and we are just getting the few last minute busy or unorganized shopping stragglers which includes me who always shops on the 24th ...

    The 13th was my biggest day of this holiday season :-) It's been a decline since then.

    I had my biggest day at CJ on Monday, 18th. As long as our merchants have a way to ship their products to arrive on time for Christmas, we'll see sales.

    My biggest day was the 18th. I was kind of surprised, as I figured it had already peaked.
