Black Friday Cyber Monday is no longer the exclusive domain of big box retailers. Businesses of all sizes continue to make their mark and bolster the shopping weekend’s tremendous growth. Last year, Shopify merchants alone generated over $1.5 billion in sales during Black Friday Cyber Monday, all while selling and shipping orders across the world.

With Black Friday Cyber Monday 2019 just around the corner, today we’re excited to reintroduce our BFCM Live Map. The Live Map tracks worldwide Black Friday Cyber Monday sales made on the Shopify platform in real-time.

The data provides a one-of-a-kind view into events as they unfold throughout BFCM, from granular details to global trends. This year, the map is available in seven additional languages: Spanish, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, Dutch, and German. Viewers can also see notifications related to non-USD checkouts as they happen.

Explore the live map to see everything from how far international shipments have traveled, to the rate of sales per minute across Shopify. If you’re lucky, you may even catch an active flash sale in progress.

The full story of Black Friday Cyber Monday on Shopify will slowly unfold with each successful sale, so stay tuned as the numbers roll in and new information makes its way to the map.

That just leaves the story sum totals can’t tell—your story. At Shopify, we remain inspired by you, independent business owners from around the world, as you navigate through the frantic shopping weekend and steadfastly push forward to grow your business and, in turn, make commerce more diverse and resilient.
