Mobile e-commerce, or m-commerce, is gaining momentum. However, it continues to remain far behind desktop PC-generated e-commerce, according to comScore.

From Q1 2012 to Q2 2014, e-commerce on PCs and mobile grew in the double digits year-over-year in the United States. The most robust e-commerce period was the fourth quarter prior to the holiday buying season. E-commerce grew from US$64 billion in Q4 2012 to US$71.4 billion in Q4 2013 for PC and mobile sales, including US$7.2 billion in m-commerce sales in 2012 and US$8.3 billion in 2013.

E-commerce increases dramatically around the holiday season.
