EBay experienced its biggest mobile shopping day on Sunday, 9 December 2012.
Alongside the announcement, PayPal also reported that it was the payment service’s second biggest shopping day ever on 9 December 2012, as the global mobile payment volume grew 221% over the second Sunday in December 2011.
The US transacted mobile volume numbers show that Sunday was a busier shopping day than that of Cyber Monday, Black Friday and Thanksgiving.
“We’re seeing a change in the way people are shopping because of mobile, and this has turned the holiday shopping calendar on its head,” eBay’s VP of mobile, Steve Yankovich, said.
EBay and PayPal are forecasting over $10 billion in mobile transaction and mobile payment volumes, respectively.
