What is Click Monday?

Click Monday is New Zealand's biggest online sales day ever, based on the legendary Cyber Monday event out of the US. Clickmonday.co.nz is a centralized site that showcases brands and offers from New Zealand retailers across many categories. Users find an offer on site and then click through to the retailer's site to make their purchase.

Click Monday is growing every year. Our November 2015 event grew 11% to a whisker under 100,000 user sessions. We have almost 60,000 on our email database and would love to help you reach them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Click Monday?
Click Monday has created a new sales event in the New Zealand retail calendar. Cyber Monday is the largest single day of online sales in the US, and many countries have created their own peak sales days online capitalising on this opportunity. Clickmonday.co.nz is a centralised site that showcases brands and offers from New Zealand retailers across many categories. Click Monday Limited and participating retailers band together to drive consumer awareness of the event, and this results in a greater number of incremental sales and new customers to individual retailers than if they were simply marketing a sales event to their own customer base.

What makes you confident that you can handle the high traffic peaks of an event like this - will the Click Monday site crash?
We have a historical event to base this years traffic from, in 2015 the site was available 100% of the time during the event and did not experience any issues.
What if my site crashes - what will the user experience be, what will the user see?
The user will see an error page, or browser warning - we have some historical numbers from our previous events that we are comfortable to share on a case by case basis about the amount of traffic we were sending in short bursts - please get in touch with alain@clickmonday.co.nz if you would like this info.
How much traffic and how many transactions should I expect? What peak management does my site have to be able to achieve in order to participate?
We cannot predict what level of traffic will go to the Click Monday site, or the volume of clicks to your own site. We expect it to be significant! That's certainly what we are planning for. Please be sure to advise your ecommerce site provider that you are participating in the event and seek their advice on the traffic and transactional peaks that your own site is able to manage.
