Mobile commerce traffic makes up one quarter of online shopping

A newly released report has revealed that 25 percent of e-shoppers are using smartphones and tablets.

A report that has recently been issued by Monetate has shown that approximately one quarter of all of the global online shopping comes from mobile commerce traffic through smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

This represents a meaningful increase in the sector’s share, even within the last quarter, alone.

Monetate’s data showed that mobile commerce traffic increased by about 3 percent within the last quarter. Of that mobile device based shopping, tablets represent approximately two thirds. This means that tablet users are currently responsible for about 15 percent of all of the ecommerce activity that is going on at the moment.

The larger screen devices have been representing a larger proportion of mobile commerce traffic.

When it comes to the average amount that users of these devices are spending when they make an order online, it is becoming clear that purchases are not limited exclusively to small items anymore. This reports data even indicates that the average order value made through tablets actually exceeded that of desktops and laptops within the last quarter. That said, PCs still hold their dominance over the online shopping marketplace, by quite a large majority.

The average order value made over a laptop or desktop computer was $136. Just slightly higher was the average order value made over tablets, which was $139. Finally, over smartphones, it was still a high number, though quite a bit lower than the orders made over PCs and tablets, having been $114.

In terms of specific brands and their contribution to mobile commerce traffic, it is Apple’s iPad that reigns supreme. That device is responsible for more than half of the online shopping done over tablets. That share of the tablet commerce category actually increased over the last quarter despite the fact that there is notably greater competition.

Smartphone based purchases are representing a very large proportion of the overall figure.

The largest online marketplace in India, Snapdeal, has just released its mobile commerce data in that it has revealed that at the moment 30 percent of online purchases are originating from smartphones.

This trend has appeared to increase to a tremendous degree on the website, skyrocketing over last year’s figures.

The average number of visitors recorded by Snapdeal for its website was between 35 and 40 million per month. Among them, 12 million are from smartphones. From that 80 percent is organic, and 60 percent is new to the website.

This last data suggests that consumers may not be entirely comfortable making mobile commerce purchases online, and that they are taking precautions by paying on delivery instead of trying to pay in advance before they have received the product, in the vast majority of circumstances.

The majority of the mobile commerce visits to the sites originated from the cities of: Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi – listed in no particular order. The top selling categories over this channel on the Snapdeal website were clothing (both men’s and women’s), men’s footwear, flash drives, and memory cards.

This mobile commerce data, as a whole, suggests that the majority of smartphone users are shopping a great deal more over their devices and that this growth rate is an exceptionally rapid one considering the difference between the figures from last year and the statistics that have been recorded from this year.
