In recent years, the Alibaba Group has successfully transformed "Singles Day" to the biggest online shopping festival on the planet. This year Tmall and Taobao sales figures soared again. With a total 91.2 billion RMB ($14.32 billion) of goods sold and a 60% growth compared to 2014, there are now whisperings of doubt behind these numbers. Some reports hint at a return rate of this year's merchandise to be as high as 64% citing that Alibaba's numbers are preliminary and unaudited. While no one can really ascertain what the return rate this year will be, one number remains authoritative: 68% of the total value of transactions was through orders from mobile devices.
