Walmart: Nearly Half Of Orders Since Thanksgiving Placed On Mobile Device

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) Tuesday said nearly half of its orders since Thanksgiving have been placed on a mobile device, double compared to last year.

Star Wars toys, 4K HDTVs 50-55", drones, Xbox One and PS4 video game bundles, iPad Minis and 14-ft. trampolines were among the categories that gained the biggest boost in popularity during the period.

Two thousand of these and other Cyber Week deals are available on Walmart.com each day through Friday, December 4.

Fernando Madeira, President and CEO, Walmart.com. said, "Mobile firmly established itself as the dominant shopping trend, for both traffic and sales. Mobile is making up more than 70 percent of traffic to Walmart.com, and now, nearly half of our orders since Thanksgiving have been placed on a mobile device - that's double compared to last year."

"Our customers went from previously mostly searching and browsing on mobile, to making purchases at a much higher rate," he added.
