The NIS 19 million spent online is a swell from the NIS 11 million spent last year over the holiday weekend, which takes place on the last Friday in November, following the American holiday of Thanksgiving.

"There is a steady increase in the volume of purchases in a sub-year performance, with the peak recorded in November," the Israel International Chamber of Commerce said.
