Sales originating from mobile devices accounted for a total of 30.86% of all Ecommerce sales in June, compared to 30.59% in May

A total of 35.58% of all Ecommerce traffic originated from mobile devices, an increase of over 1% than traffic in May which ended in 34.32%. In traffic sources smartphones fared slightly better than tablets with an 18% share in June, as opposed to 17.36% in May.
Even with higher numbers in June, the average shopping cart amount dropped slightly. Mobile shopping carts averaged £67.98 in June with May returning an average of £70.45.
