As you know, there is always a surge in spending (and Web traffic) for retailers during the weeks leading up to the holidays. “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” draw out massive numbers of consumers for pre-holiday sales. And these purchasing spikes can seriously harm a business if its billing infrastructure isn’t able to handle this considerable increase in transaction volume.
