Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) took the online retail world by storm last week when it recorded $9.34 billion in sales on Singles’ Day (Nov.11). By comparison, last year’s U.S. Cyber Monday sales stood at $2.29 billion. The Chinese company receives about 39 million orders on a normal day. But its platforms received a staggering 278 million orders on Singles’ Day.

Zeng revealed that the company’s ecosystem is governed by the behavior of the marketplace rather than Alibaba’s management team.
