Some 41% of Amazon customers say they use a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) most often to make purchases on the site, according to recent research from Feedvisor.

The report was based on data from a survey of 1,507 Amazon customers age 18 and older. Half of the people surveyed are Prime members, and 60% are female.

More than half (56%) of respondents say they still use a desktop computer most often when making Amazon purchases.

Amazon customers use the site to purchase a wide range of products, including books/movies (61% have bought on Amazon in the past year), electronics (54%), and clothing/shoes/jewelry (46%).

Just over three-quarters (76%) of Amazon customers say they typically start looking for a product by using the site's search box; 10% turn to Google first; 7% go to Amazon's Departments tab.
