Click Frenzy aims to be Australia’s online sale that stops a nation


clickfrenzyThey’re calling it the sale that stops a nation. Click Frenzy will be offering amazing discounts from a range of online retailers when it goes live Tuesday night.

The sale, which kicks off at 7pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings time on November 20, looks like it will certainly live up to its name with some retailers offering up to 90 per cent off their regular prices.

Customers will be able to browse products from a number of categories including fashion, consumer electronics, homewares, appliances, books, toys, health and beauty products, furniture, automotive, computers, cosmetics, jewellery, outdoor and even wine, beer and spirits.

Participating retailers include Myer, Dick Smith, Target, Toys R Us, Telstra, Microsoft, Lenovo, Ted’s Cameras, Jag, Glue, General Pants, Camera House, Quicksilver and many, many more.

Click Frenzy in Australia takes a leaf out of the book of a similar annual online event in the US each year – Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday takes place after Black Friday – the Friday after Thanksgiving which has become the biggest shopping day of the year.

Cyber Monday was created to generate similar sales online.

Australians spent $11.7 billion online in 2011 and more than $12 billion already in 2012

Once the sale begins users will be click on individual deals and then be directed to that retailer’s website to complete the transaction.

Methods of payment will include PayPal and major credit cards but each retailer will be clearly displaying the preferred forms of payment.

The timing of the sale at 7pm Sydney time was also deliberate as most online purchases in Australia take place outside regular office hours.

Australians splashed out in online shopping last year to the tune of $11.7 billion.

And that figure looks like it will be shattered in 2012 with sales already exceeding $12 billion by September according to research by the National Australia Bank for a growth of more than 23 per cent year on year.
