Over 15.8 million people visited CyberMonday.com last holiday season, generating over $6 million in sales on Cyber Monday alone. Shop.org launched the site in November 2006, and it currently features special promotions from the more than 700 retailers represented on the site, including free shipping and dollar-off deals.
To prepare for the holidays, the site has been redesigned with new features that help consumers find the best holiday deals, including:
- An “Our Favorite Deals” section, updated frequently, which pulls ten of the site’s best deals handpicked by the team;
- A section of “Top 10 Hottest Products” featuring the season’s most popular products at great prices.
A portion of the proceeds from CyberMonday.com benefit the Ray M. Greenly Scholarship Fund in memory of former Shop.org Vice President Ray Greenly. To date, more than $1.5 million has been raised for the Scholarship Fund, which helps students pursuing careers in ecommerce.
