Mobile and holiday shopping

Mobile changes the way we shop

Fewer people were flocking to stores to take advantage of Black Friday deals. Only 1 in 5 adults planned to shop on this day, opting instead to spend time with their families and digest their turkey feasts. However, people still want to find the best deals they can in time for the holidays, and many are waiting until Cyber Monday to do so.

Rather than deal with store crowds, many consumers choose to look online for low prices and popular products. Due to the increasing popularity of mobile technology, buying remotely has become even easier. From 2012 to 2014, there has been a 23% increase in in-store sales influenced by mobile. Furthermore, 30% of all online purchases are estimated to take place on mobile devices.
