From Piqora Co-Founder and CEO Sharad Verma:
“The key takeaways from this study are that mobile and tablet revenue and average order value have gone up significantly. This means Pinterest users aren’t just browsing product images on these devices – they are actively shopping, conducting research and buying products from touch devices.”
Verma also points out that mobile Pinterest users aren’t only buying more, but buying more expensive products.
