Hamburg, Germany, July 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Nearly one-third of European Internet users completed purchases via mobile in 2016, confirms a survey from the yStats.com report. Regional countries with both advanced and emerging markets show a quickly growing increase to M-Commerce sales, leading to their share of total B2C E-Commerce sales rising. The UK, Europe’s leading market regarding online retail sales, had one-third of online retail coming from mobile in 2016, stemming from a hefty double-digit share of online shoppers purchasing with smartphones and tablets.
Another key finding highlighted from the yStats.com report is that regarding mobile sales growth, smartphones are outpacing tablets. Smartphone’s share of digital purchases increased more rapidly than tablets in countries like Belgium and the Netherlands. Tablets were even overtaken by smartphones in the UK for 2016. Nevertheless, in the UK, tablets retained a superior conversion rate than smartphones. Mobile shoppers from Germany and Russia preferred apps to browsers on both devices.
In terms of product preferences, European mobile shoppers from Russia and the UK chose clothing, whereas those in Belgium and Germany went for books in 2016, reveals the yStats.com report. Amazon dominated the field of mobile in countries like France and the UK, but in Russia mobile buyers preferred AliExpress. Despite these expansions, usability is a major concern, underlined by a quarter of shoppers in Europe that found website navigation for online purchases easier on a desktop.
