eBay Shopping Through Smartphones Tripled To US$2 Billion

eBay has released the figures. Mobile shopping through the eBay application, available for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows 7 mobile operating system, has tripled to US$2 billion, with shoppers in the UK the fastest adopter of mCommerce, making a purchase every two seconds.

According to eBay, their application for smart phones for ease of online shopping at their marketplace has been downloaded 30 million times in 8 languages in 190 countries. The iPhone app is the leader in the number of times an eBay app has been downloaded.

The rate of growth for mCommerce has got me thinking that any online store which has yet to be mobile friendly is losing out.
