SpendingPulse™

Data Feed by Mastercard

Added to Marketplace for Purchase: June 07, 2019

Highlights
  • Gain a greater understanding of total market and regional sales. Examine consumer purchasing habits by broad sector and sub-sector, demographic differences, eCommerce sales trends, and top spending periods to uncover patterns, inform business decisions, and take advantage of marketing opportunities.
  • Identify trends during peak shopping times, e.g. the holiday season, Black Friday, Easter, and back-to-school time with specific analysis focusing on sector trends during these periods.
  • Leverage the largest transaction dataset available to investors, merchants, and financial institutions. Access U.S. monthly total retail spend a week before U.S. Department of Commerce release to better predict sales numbers. Historically, SpendingPulse™ unadjusted total retail sales numbers have a high correlation (.95+) to Department of Commerce figures.
