Today's Cyber Monday sales data might be impressive - but for a real statistical whopper, take a look at the mobile payments data:
- Shoppers in the U.S. purchased nearly two and a half times as many items via eBay Mobile this Black Friday when compared to 2010.
- Correspondingly, PayPal Mobile announced a six-fold (516%) increase in global mobile payment volume compared to last year.
- GSI Commerce announced a three-fold (254%) increase in U.S. mobile sales on Black Friday.
Granted, percentage is the friend of the small, and mobile payments are still only a blip in terms of overall Dollar volume. But year-over-year growth like this is one more indicator for the longer-term trajectory of mobile payments.
