Mobile shoppers tend to spend the most on Sunday, with November through February not surprisingly the most active months for shopping. Retailers have created mobile versions of websites and online stores, trying to woo users to spend money while browsing the Internet on their smartphones and tablets.
"Online shopping has become a major force in global markets," said Larry Moores, Opera Software VP for Consumer Mobile Reporting and Analytics, in a statement. "And, with the holiday shopping season upon us in the United States, we see mobile's share of that market accelerating."
Desktop traffic to e-commerce sites peaks on Mondays and remains popular throughout the week - and drops on weekends - as people are enjoying their time off, spending it out and about. It's possible customers also browse for items on Saturday and Sunday, and then make purchases at their desktop on Monday.
