Alibaba said more than 200,000 brands are participating in the 11th Singles Day gala, with 1 million new products being offered and more than 500 million users forecast to spend, 100 million more than last year. It added that the estimated consumer savings from brand and platform promotions and coupons could reach 50 billion yuan.

阿里巴巴表示,超过20万个品牌参加了今年的“双十一”购物节,推出100万个新产品,预计将有超过5亿消费者在此期间购物消费,比去年多出1亿。据估计,消费者从品牌和平台推广以及优惠券中节省的花费将达到500亿元。

More than 64 brands achieved over 100 million yuan in gross merchandise volume in the pre-order phase from Oct 21, which was twice the number of brands compared to last year, the company said.

去年,阿里巴巴在“双十一”当天商品交易总额达到2135亿元,超过了美国“黑色星期五”和“网络星期一”销售额的总和。但随着竞争加剧,阿里巴巴正在寻找新的思路来推动销售,留住用户。

他预计新增消费者将达到300万人。“今天的极限可能会成为明天的常态。我们真正看重的不是销售数据本身,而是与消费者深入接触的机会。”
