When it comes to online shopping, women are now more likely than men to reach for their smartphones and tablets to research products and make purchases. 

  • Of US consumers who say they’ve completed a purchase on a mobile device in the last month, 66.5% are women and 33.5% are men. Compare that to 2013, when a greater share of men than women completed purchases on mobile.

It’s important for retailers to understand who drives mobile commerce trends because sales on smartphones and tablets are growing three times faster than overall e-commerce in the US. Given that women have become the dominant mobile shoppers, the mobile channel could begin to reflect overall shopping habits even faster than e-commerce as a whole. 

In a new report from BI Intelligencewe look at the online shopping habits of each gender and assess how this behavior is driving growth in mobile commerce. We also break down the demographics of US online shoppers by age, income, and education, and take a look at what they’re shopping for, and how their behaviors differ.
