Bigger than Black Friday

After a Black Friday that didn’t quite live up to high expectations, Cyber Monday appears to have fared much better – at least on mobile.

Reviewing numbers from the same subset of retailers we looked at in yesterday’s Black Friday post, we see a 62% increase in mobile revenue on Cyber Monday.

Mobile visits only saw a modest increase of 10% over Black Friday, and average order size saw a slight downtick. It was instead a huge jump in conversion rates – up 55% – that lead the increased mobile revenue.

This increase in conversions was likely a result of more targeted online-specific offers and fewer customers using their phones for in-person comparison shopping. For these reasons and more, Cyber Monday seems to have convinced holiday shoppers to take out their wallets and convert.
