IBM reports mobile emerged as a true season game changer: mobile sales increased a whopping 29.3 percent and accounted for one in five transactions. Total sales were up 8.7 percent over 2013, according to IBM.
Analysts say Cyber Monday’s results were so strong they could offset lackluster sales from Black Friday. Total Thanksgiving weekend spending declined 11 percent to $50.9 billion this year, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF). Stores saw about 6 million fewer shoppers than expected.
