Despite tepid economic conditions, the first 48 days of online holiday shopping are proving to be quite robust. ComScore says online sales are up 4% for the year, totaling $24.8 billion as of Sunday.

On Tuesday, Dec. 15, comScore recorded an all-time high for online sales — $913 million. So far this year, on nine separate occasions, consumers have spent over $800 million in a single day.

There’s still four more online shopping days. Will we push past $1 billion in a single day? Or will it have to wait until next year?
