During Black Friday alone, the Italian online retailer reported 1.5 million shoppers visiting it's 40 digital stores as the group received an order every 3.5 seconds from international consumers around the globe. The group noted that the majority of its orders came from North America, where the two days are established as the start of the holiday season but added that excitement for the retail bonanza had traveled to Europe as well, “driving outstanding growth in the UK, Italy, Germany and Russia.”

Yoox's online sales in Asia were boosted by shoppers in China, where sales reportedly increased nearly fourfold, with Hong Kong sales more than doubling.
