Mobile dominates Amazon sales over the holidays

Mobile Commerce Minute Episode #450:

Joyful. That’s how I would classify Amazon’s mobile shopping season. Fearful is how I would think of it if I was any other retailer who hasn’t embraced mobile yet. Amazon released their mobile shopping stats for the holidays and it is dominated by mobile. Chuck runs down the key numbers for us here and gives us his experience with a Bed Bath & Beyond store that lost his business to Amazon – a warning to all retailers. My favourite stat? On Cyber Monday, 18 toys per second were sold from the Amazon mobile app – that’s over 1.5 million toys for the day…Joyful for the children indeed.
