Pippa Middleton boosts wedding sales on eBay

17 May 2017

With the imminence of Pippa Middleton's wedding this weekend, eBay has reported a rise in wedding-related items being listed and sold online

In the lead up to the most-talked about wedding of 2017, eBay has released insight in to how Pippa Middleton's nuptials have spurred sales on the website.

Within the last three months, 330 Pippa Middleton-related items have been listed on eBay.

More than 173,000 listings of wedding dresses have gone live in the last three months as the excitement and anticipation surrounding Pippa's big day has taken hold. 

Sales of control pants have also escalated - perhaps inspired by the socialite's perky posterior - with 17,000 sold since mid-February, equating to eight sets every hour.

eBay has also revealed that the start of a new year is the most popular time to start wedding planning with the most favoured time for searching and buying as 8-9pm on a Sunday.
