Desktop and Mobile Reach Commerce Dollar Sales

In Q3 2015, comScore estimates reveal that total digital commerce sales in the U.S. reached $69.7 billion, an increase of 15 percent year-over-year from $60.6 billion in Q3 2014. The majority of online sales came via desktop, with $58.3 billion in sales on the platform, which accounted for 84 percent of the digital dollars spent. Mobile commerce contributed the remaining 16 percent, or $11.4 billion in the quarter while achieving strong year-over-year growth at 70 percent (as compared to just 8 percent from desktop). After 17 consecutive quarters of double-digit e-commerce growth on desktop, Q3 2015 was the third straight quarter in which the growth rate dipped below 10 percent amidst a more pronounced channel shift from desktop to mobile spending in the wake of the 2014 holiday season.
