The rise of in-store mobile commerce

January 31, 2012

During a 30 day period before and after Christmas:

- 38% of cell owners used their phone to call a friend while they were in a store for advice about a purchase they were considering making

- 24% of cell owners used their phone to look up reviews of a product online while they were in a store

- 25% of adult cell owners used their phones to look up the price of a product online while they were in a store, to see if they could get a better price somewhere else

Taken together, just over half (52%) of all adult cell owners used their phone for at least one of these three reasons over the holiday shopping season and one third (33%) used their phone specifically for online information while inside a physical store—either product reviews or pricing information.
