It's no small wonder that eCommerce merchants have seen major increases in mobile device use. Sales of Smartphones hit a staggering 1.86 billion in 2013 — and a forecast of an expected 6.6 billion mobile devices will be in use by the end of 2017.
In 2013, merchants have reported increases in traffic from mobile phone users in upwards of 29% over 2012. About 10% of those merchants reported 27% of their revenue can be directly tied to mobile device and mobile application use.
One thing you may not have noticed from the figures above — by 2017 mobile phone use will outnumber the World’s actual population. To simplify it - it is expected that there will be approximately 2 mobile devices to every person on the planet. It is also forecasted that by the end of 2014 — mobile device use will overtake desktop use on the internet.
