Is Your Site or App Ready for Black Friday 2016?   Online E-Commerce Sales are Soaring In 2015, more shoppers than ever before shopped at home instead of going to stores. Online sales rose to $2.74 billion, 21.5% more than 2014.  The average page views per minute increased by 109%.  Mobile Traffic is on the Rise  Mobile traffic was 57.2% of all online traffic in 2015 - the first time it exceeded the 50% line. Mobile sales were also on the rise, reaching more than a third of all online sales.     Everyone is Going Online Online shoppers prefer the convenience of shopping at home over overcrowded stores.  But even bricks and mortar shoppers used smartphones and tablets to find bargains and improve their shopping experience.      Make Sure You’re Ready Before 9:00 AM!    Ramp-up began at 6:00 AM and peaked at 10:00 AM. This is consistent with traffic peaks over the past 4 years.    John Lewis's website went down around 3.20pm – which analysts predict could have cost them up to £2.8m.  Consumers Abandon Transactions When they Hit Problems  Retailers risk losing 33% of shoppers to a competitor that offers a more convenient or streamlined shopping experience   46% of consumers say that waiting for pages to load is their least favorite thing about shopping via mobile.  Mobile sites that loaded in 5 seconds earned almost double the revenue of sites that took 19 seconds to load.      Want to make sure your site or app can stand up to the challenge on Black Friday?
