E-Commerce: Which States Convert Most, Mobile Shopping Trends

November 21, 2012

Geography can play a big role in influencing e-commerce performance measurements such as conversion rate and average order value (AOV), according to a report by Monetate, which analyzed a random sample of more than 100 million online shopping experiences for the third quarter of 2012.

In the US, for example, none of the top five states that drive the most traffic to leading e-commerce websites (California, New York, Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania) have the highest conversion rates.

California accounts for the plurality of e-commerce traffic in the US (13.47%), followed by New York (8.14%), Texas (6.63%), Florida (5.58%), and Pennsylvania (5.35%).

At the bottom of the list in traffic volume are Vermont (0.24%), Alaska (0.21%), North Dakota (0.19%), South Dakota (0.18%), and Wyoming (0.15%).

    "nearly one in five consumers made online purchases via smartphone (10.03%)

    I'd like to know what kind of shopping they were doing. For instance, I buy directly from the Groupon app on my phone but prefer to do "real" shopping from a computer. I wonder if there is a relationship between item purchased and platform used.

    I'm sorry, but that first map is almost pointless. The states with the most eCommerce are also the states with the most population - how is that news?
