According to data from the Custora Pulse, Cyber Monday was the biggest day in e-commerce history, with online sales increasing 18% vs. Cyber Monday 2012.
The Pulse is based on Custora’s analysis of over 70 million online shoppers and over $10 billion in e-commerce revenue across over 100 US-based online retailers.
Other notable e-commerce Cyber Monday trends:
One in three purchases was done on mobile devices (phones and tablets) on Cyber Monday.
Apple still dominates e-commerce with 80% of mobile orders, but Android devices are gaining share, with 20% of mobile orders this Cyber Monday, up from 13% on Cyber Monday 2012.
Social Commerce didn’t happen on Cyber Monday: Social Networks (including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram) generated less than 1% in e-commerce sales on Cyber Monday.
