Highlights
  • Leverage the Mastercard SpendingPulse™ suite of macroeconomic and industry data services that provide national and regional measures of the U.S. retail economy. SpendingPulse™ reports are based on the aggregated sales activity of the Mastercard U.S. payments network, coupled with estimates on all other payments forms including cash and check.
  • Access U.S. monthly total retail spend the first week of the month, typically a week before U.S. Department of Commerce release, to gain a greater understanding of total market and regional sales. Examine retail spend by broad sector and sub-sector, 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.
