Cyber Monday was the biggest U.S. online shopping day in history

American consumers are about to click their way into the record books.

Cyber Monday is expected to generate $7.8 billion in sales, up nearly 18% on last year, which would make it the biggest online shopping day in the U.S., according to Adobe Analytics.

That’s more than the $6.2 billion in online sales for Black Friday, up nearly 24% on last year. But it still pales in comparison to China’s $30.8 billion in spending on Alibaba Singles Day last month.

Some stores started their Cyber Monday sales early. Macy’s M, -1.78% has been offering “cyber week” deals until Wednesday.
