Because Technology is Complicated Enough
eBay Cyber Monday Mobile Sales Up 146 Percent, iPhones Dominate Transactions
In the U.S., cars & trucks topped the list of products purchased by mobile phones, and cell phone & PDA accessories and women’s clothing led in terms of total number of transactions. During November 22 through November 29, the most money was spent using mobile phones in California, Texas, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania. California was the most active state in both sales volume and number of transactions.
Another compelling data point: according to an eBay survey, over half the people who shop regularly on their phones are comfortable spending over $100 on a purchase, with 14 percent willing to spend over a thousand dollars (eBay notes that earlier this year an eBay shopper purchased a Mercedes-Benz for $240,000 using their mobile phone). On the average, mobile shoppers spend over $100 per month.
