The use of mobile devices plays a significant role in your customer's path to purchase. If you’re still looking at your mobile store as secondary to desktop, that must change. You’re only hurting yourself.
In 2014 we saw that 50.3% of all global eCommerce traffic came from a mobile device, while 49.7% came from a desktop. For the first time ever, there were more online shoppers using their mobile devices to browse eCommerce stores than desktop. That number is not going down.
Marketingland reports that 90% of consumers have admitted to browsing their mobile phone in-store for price comparisons, more product information, online reviews or in-store deals. If you’re a retailer that’s got a physical location and online store, you better make sure you’re offering a true Omni-channel experience.
But your customers aren’t just using their mobile to browse either, they most definitely are buying. Qualitative data from Goldman Sachs reports that by 2018, sales from mobile devices will reach $626 billion. Want a piece of that? Of course you do.
