Report: Cyber Monday was the largest e-commerce day in history
Nearly $3.4 billion spent online according to data from Adobe.
According to data from Adobe, Cyber Monday became the largest day in US e-commerce history. Consumers spent roughly $3.4 billion online, which just beat Black Friday’s $3.34 billion. Cyber Monday generated somewhat less mobile commerce revenue at $1.19 billion vs. $1.2 billion on Black Friday.
Nonetheless, smartphones and tablets drive more traffic than PCs yesterday. Adobe said that 44 percent of retail site traffic came from smartphones, while 9 percent was from tablets. More conversions happened on PCs however, driving 65 percent of online retail sales. Adobe reported that the average order value on iPhones was $139 and $124 on Android devices.
