The date, November 11 (11.11), is chosen because the number “1” resembles an individual that is alone.

Singles Day it’s a one of more important days for sellers and buyers that use Alibaba sites. Singles Day Shopping Festival, which take place on 11 November, it is  24 hours sale. Alibaba’s Singles Day 2016 is on November 11, 2016. The 24 hour online shopping event is generating a staggering amount of sales.

Europeans can set their alarm to 6pm CET. Chinese shoppers will swamp the Alibaba stores and inventories of the best deals will deplete fast on double eleven.

How to Shop on Singles Day 2016

Singles Day 2016 deals will be available on Tmall.com, Taobao.com, Aliexperss.com and Alibaba.com. The Aliexpress and Alibaba stores are in English and cater to the international shoppers sending they orders to many countries around the world. There is an Alibaba Shopping App as well as an Aliexpress Shopping App available in the app stores for mobile shopping.

During one day sale event many sellers (in reality over 90%) reduce their prices and offer a discount coupon, which can be used only on the 11.11 when shopping on Aliexperss.com

Mobile app users of Aliexperss.com  have probably noticed the new logo which include the 11.11 icon. All this to introduce all shoppers to the upcoming event during which online shoppers will spend millions. 

The Singles Days was inspired by Cyber Monday and Black Friday, shopping events popular in the US which also offer great discounts for its shoppers.
Last year all Alibaba’s selling platforms (including Aliexperss.com) profit 14,3 milliard dollars within 24 hours. This figure is to rise this year so lets hope Aliexperss.com has some great deals on offer for its shoppers to encourage them to spend more. Just to compare the Cyber Monday last years profit was 3.07 milliard dollars, over 11 million less than 11.11 sale profits.


Very popular in many countries Aliexperss.com from few days already trying to pressured its users to take part in the Global Shopping Festival. To make it “more appealing” Aliexperss.com has prepared large amount of activities, competitions and games to make it fan for all shoppers and allow them to grab coupons, which can be used during the 11.11 Sale. Remember, no all – 50% OFF are great deals in reality. Raising prices before the sale to drop them on the day of the sale it become a very popular practice by many sellers. Another one, also popular method is to offer small quantity of item at truly discounted price.  Despite the fact, that some sellers do not fully “understand” the meaning of discount, Aliexperss.com team compensate this with a large amount of coupons which shoppers can cumulate before the sale. So if you do plan to spend your monthly salary during the 11.11 sale event (like me 🙂 ) please do make sure that you check all you “wish list” items prices and use as many coupons as possible to get a great deal out of the sale.
