December 12, 2012 (Newswire.com) - It is believed that online retailers throughout the UK may well have seen their busiest day in history last Monday. Christened 'Mega Monday', the first Monday in December is traditionally a hectic day for retailers as shoppers log on in their millions to check out last minute Christmas presents. But with an average of £222,222 being spent per minute and 4,722 transactions being made every sixty seconds, this year's Mega Monday was the most mega of all. One daily deals site is urging UK small businesses to build on this surge of online shopping and cement their sales status with a permanent online presence.
