Mobile Conversion Benchmarks

Our merchants frequently ask us how they are doing compared to others so I was happy to find this infographic today from the good folks at that run the eTail conferences.   It is based on a survey of 210 online retailers across a wide range of industries. My only complaint about the data is that 59% of the survey respondents were < $50 Million in online sales which is a heck of a big range!  We know from experience that there is a huge difference between what is possible for...

Mobile Commerce and Mobile eCommerce

I keep getting distracted by articles from the payment card industry about what they are calling mobile commerce.  This should more accurately be called Mobile Payments and has nothing to do with your eCommerce site.
