A new report by Nielsen shows that over eight in 10 (84%) of U.S. mobile consumers used their devices for shopping within the past 30 days, up 5% from a year ago survey.
Mobile shopping by gender is about even, though women tend to buy more physical goods than men.
The biggest jump was in the 25-34 age bracket which now makes up 28% of the total versus 24% a year ago.
Wealthier consumers tend to be the most active shoppers with those having incomes over $100,000 accounting for 35% of the total.
But the study also points out that the biggest growth came from households with income below $50,000, rising to 21% - 8% higher than a year ago.
