Gross invoicing in e-commerce in the seven days prior to Black Friday totaled a nominal growth of 8% compared to the same period of 2021, according to information from NielsenIQEbit. Among the items with the highest increases are foods, especially meat.

The period had two highlights, according to the survey. The first was the 24% increase in orders for the Food and Beverages basket between the 18th and the 23rd, driven by the categories of non-alcoholic beverages, meats, bakery/confectionery and cold cuts.

“The first figures for this pre-Black Friday period show the consolidation of a trend that November has become a whole month of competitive prices, not just concentrated on Black Friday in fact”, said the head of e-commerce at NielsenIQ Ebit, Marcelo Osanai.

Gross sales growth of 42.5% in the Electronics category was driven by sales of television, cell phones and smartphones. “These categories are synonymous with Black Friday. But it is worth mentioning that, with the World Cup, consumers take the opportunity to renew their TVs to watch the games”, said Osanai.
